Thread: Pacemaker and ICD question

  1. #1

    Default Pacemaker and ICD question

    AAPC: Back to School
    I'm coding a EP Study, how would you code removal of a PPM (Pacemaker) and replaced with an ICD lead and defibrillator. Below is what I came up with, but just want to be assured.


    Thanks anyone who can assist.
