Hi, Could you define 64585 as to what constitutes a "revision"
SuperCoder Answered Tue 23rd of August, 2016 08:01:33 AM

HI,

 

A peripherally implanted neurostimulator, or nerve stimulator, transmits electrical impulses to nerves outside of the brain and spinal cord. It involves implanting electrodes around a selected peripheral motor or sensory nerve. The electrodes or leads then attach to a subcutaneously placed receiver or electronic pulse generator unit, which stimulates the nerve. Sciatic and ulnar nerves are often the sites of such an implantation. In this procedure, revision means the provider revises a peripherally implanted electrode array that is the constitute of implanted neurostimulator.
