Question:

I’ve got a coronary intervention case with one stent placed into the diagonal via a vein graft and a second stent placed into the LAD via a LIMA graft.  Would this be reported as C9604-LD x2 or C9604-LD and C9605-LD instead?

Answer:

Because the stents were placed through separate grafts, you would report C9604-LD x 2.
