    There is always much discussion regarding the use of 996.72 for in-stent restenosis. That is because this is a mechanical complication code. However, your ICD-9 book does advise the use of this code for this condition. 414.02 should only be used for stenosis of a autologous vein graft.

    Hope that helps,
