Is any one else doing angiography/stenting procedures. I am really confused on the selective catheter placement descriptions ie 1st,2nd 3rd etc. I have tried to research and am still at a loss. Any coding neurointerventional resources available????

Dr Z's Interventional Radiology Coding Reference is an excellent resource for all procedures within this field. HCPRO also offers a wonderful resource with a book titled Interventional Coding that you should find beneficial. Lastly, Coding Strategies, Inc offers an incredibly informative seminar several times per year that I have found extremely beneficial from a coding/billing perspective for interventional coding.
Hope these suggestions help, best of luck to you!
