Ptca

  1. Question Ptca
    Medical Coding Books
    If the provider documents:

    CAD, ptca

    would you code this as 414.01 and V45.82 or does the provider have to document ptca/stent in order to document V45.82?

    Thank you!

    I had to read this several times to understand what I think you are asking. Can you use V45.82 if PTCA is documented alone without stent ? The answer to this is yes. V45.82 can be used(as far as I know) for status post PTCA.
