    I get 997.2 (Peripheral vascular complication, NEC) and E8790 Cardiac catherization with abnormal reaction/late complication-no misadventure during procedure. Not sure if I would code the aneurysm.
    Pseudoaneurysm by definition: A dilation of an artery with actual disruption of one or more layers of its walls, rather than with expansion of all wall layers. Also called false aneurysm.
    Aneurysm: a permanent cardiac or arterial dilatation usually caused by weakening of the vessel wall.
    Any other thoughts?
