    Patient has esophageal cancer and previously had a stent placement.

    Patient was seen a couple days ago due to 'Migrated Stent'...

    Anyone ever find an appropriate diag code for this?


  2. SuperCoder Posted 8 Year(s) ago

    The meaning of "migrated stent" is actually that the stent is displaced currently. This is a mechanical complication of the stent, and you can code 996.59 (Mechanical complication Due to other implant and internal device, not elsewhere classified) for this.
