What dx can I use for a calcified ureteral stent that had to be fragmented by use of laser?

Greetings from SuperCoder.com!
There is no specific ICD-10 CM code for “calcified ureteral stent”. This should be coded as “complication of genitourinary devices”. So the best choice of code for this scenarios is T83.192A (Other mechanical complication of indwelling ureteral stent, initial encounter).
Please feel free to write if you have any concern or questions.
