    It is hard to tell without the documentation.

    Is it a post-op period ?
    Is a NEW stent inserted ?
    If yes, you cannot bill for the stent removal 52310 because it must be done as a separate procedure. CCI bundles 52310 into the primary px 52353.

    I'd assign 52353-58 + 52332-58 (following CMS cci edits).

    Still need the documentation to give you a correct answer.

    52310 bundles with 52310

    52353, 52332-59
