    Default Ureteral stent removal via ileal conduit

    AAPC: Back to School
    I need help finding the CPT for the removal of a ureteral stent via an ileal conduit. It was removed with a grasping instrument.

    Did your physician also examine the conduit? Look at 44380 and 52310, 52.

    No in this case he only removed the stent, but i have a similar case where he did examine the conduit and also used a holmium laser to disintegrate a stone in the conduit. Would I be able to use 44380 and 52353?

    Yeah, I would use both those codes for a holium laser.
