    Exam Training Packages
    I am in need of help with coding these 3 cases:

    1)
    -Selective left and right coronary angiogram.
    -Left heart cath w/o left ventricular angiogram
    -Intravascular ultrasound of the LAD/LM and OM/LCX
    -Successful percutaneous intervention of inferior branch of the obtuse marginal 2 using 2 overlapping drug-eluting stents. Pre-intervential stenosis great than 90%. Post-interventional stenosis 0%. Stents used were two 2.5 x 8 mm Xience V overlapping stents.
    -Intracoronary nitroglycerin
    -Conscious sedation for 90 mins.

    2)
    -Selective left and right coronary angiogram
    -Left heart cath w/o left ventricular anigiogram
    -Coronary artery bypass graft study
    -Intracoronary nitroglycerin x5
    -Conscious sedation for 90 mins
    -Successful percutaneous intervention of inferior branch of the obtuse marginal 2 using 2 overlapping drug-eluting stents. Pre-intervential stenosis great than 80%. Post-interventional stenosis 0%. Stents used were two 3.5 x 8 mm Xience V overlapping stents.

    3)
    -Selective left and right coronary angiogram.
    -Left heart cath w/o left ventricular angiogram
    -Intravascular ultrasound of the mid right coronary artery lesion
    -Fractional flow reserve of the mid right coronary artery lesion
    -Intracoronary nitroglycerin
    -Conscious sedation for 60 mins.
    -Right common femoral arteriogram and right common femoral arteriotomy closure w/StarClose.

    These new Cardio codes have me so confused. Thanks for your help.
