When documentation shows intra-aortic balloon pump (IABP) use, there are plenty of scenarios where the correct ICD-10-PCS code is 5A02210. Whether IABP supports percutaneous coronary intervention, is placed and then removed a few hours later, or assistance continues after placement at another facility, look at 5A02210. That’s the news in AHA Coding Clinic® for ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS, Vol. 5, No. 2.
