CCI component 2 codes - what was done
Procedure: Occlusion
CCI 2 code: 51
CCI Collection Mode: CCI collect each

This procedure is a part of CCI Collection. This is one of the CCI component 2 codes - what was done.

Additional Info


  • Combine this "what was done" code with the code for the body part that underwent occlusion
  • AN IMPORTANT EXCEPTION is that if a procedure was done to occlude a blood vessel to control bleeding, then do NOT use this "what was done" code, but instead use Control of Bleeding
    • But use this code as part of component construction of a procedure to occlude a blood vessel that is NOT (yet) bleeding -- e.g. if they embolize a cerebral artery for a growing, but not yet bleeding, cerebral aneurysm.
  • 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
  • use for nerve block for migraine
  • embolization, for embolectomy use Extraction, if actively bleeding use Control of Bleeding
  • coiling if not actively bleeding, use this with (T) Intracranial Vessels
  • Glue for ICH or AVM, combine with (T) Intracranial Vessels
