Additional Info

  • Combine this "what was done" code with the code for the body part that underwent occlusion.
  • That body part can be a blood vessel to code a procedure used to stop bleeding, such as embolization, banding, or surgical ligation
  • To code placement of an IVC filter, you'd combine this component with (T) Vena Cava
  • To code closure of a patent ductus arteriosis you combine it with (T) Pulmonary Artery
  • The body part can be of a nonvascular structure
    • For example, a radical approach to aspiration is to ligate the trachea and create a "spit fistula" -- you'd code that with two separate CCI codes:
    • For example, it can be used to indicate occlusion of other structures (e.g. lacrimal gland duct)
  • To code TACE transarterial chemoembolization for liver cancer via femoral artery to block hepatic artery code this with (T) Liver

Collecting "CCI collect each" items

  • "CCI collect each" items are entered each time they happen
  • If they happen more than once on a day, enter the number of times as Px Count for that day, otherwise enter a Px Count of 1== Alternate CCIs to consider coding instead or in addition ==
