Hello Prahlad,

Thank you for your question.

 

These types of cardiac procedures cannot be coded without operative reports. Operative report is must for accurate coding. As per the provided limited documentation, you should refer below mentioned CPT® codes for the performed procedure(s). 

 

  • Left heart catheterization with right and left angiogram- 93458
  • Distal left main evaluation using IVUS Catheter- 92978
  • LCx IFR- 93571

 

Hope this helps.

Thanks
