    While we wait for a kind soul knowledgeable in cardiology coding to reply to your request, take a look at this thread of messages in General Surgery: http://www.aapc.com/memberarea/forum...ad.php?t=41221. That situation may be similar to yours.

    You may want to use the Search function in the header to do your search on what others may have discussed that may bear on your issue.

    Happy coding,
