    Default S/P Stent

    AAPC: Back to School
    Is V43.4 appropriate to use for artery stent status.

    V43.4 is:
    Organ or tissue replaced by other means, Blood Vessel.
    V43 Category includes note: organ or tissue assisted by other means, replacement of organ by: artificial device, mechanical device, prosthesis.

    I would believe a stent would fall under artificial device.

    Default S/P Stent

    I usually use V45.82 percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty status. Anyone else?

    I agree with Anna W., V45.82 is what I use for stent status.
