93457 CPT4 codes description


(Shinjinaka) #1

The description for 93455 and 93457 are exactly same.

40756911 93455 Catheter placement in coronary artery(s) for coronary angiography, including intraprocedural injection(s) for coronary angiography, imaging supervision and interpretation; with catheter placement(s) in bypass graft(s) (internal mammary, free arterial, ven CPT4 Standard Valid Procedure CPT4
40757138 93457 Catheter placement in coronary artery(s) for coronary angiography, including intraprocedural injection(s) for coronary angiography, imaging supervision and interpretation; with catheter placement(s) in bypass graft(s) (internal mammary, free arterial, ven CPT4 Standard Valid Procedure CPT4

It seems like 93457 should be corrected.
93455 Coronary angiography with bypass grafts
93457 Coronary angiography and bypass grafts, with right heart catheterization

Thanks

93458 and 93459 also have same description.

40756950 93458 Catheter placement in coronary artery(s) for coronary angiography, including intraprocedural injection(s) for coronary angiography, imaging supervision and interpretation; with left heart catheterization including intraprocedural injection(s) for left ven CPT4 Standard Valid Procedure CPT4
40756979 93459 Catheter placement in coronary artery(s) for coronary angiography, including intraprocedural injection(s) for coronary angiography, imaging supervision and interpretation; with left heart catheterization including intraprocedural injection(s) for left ven CPT4 Standard Valid Procedure CPT4

@shinjinaka true story. This situation happens from time to time due to concept table restrictions: concept_name is restricted to be 255 symbols max. Concepts with bigger names are cut to 255 and the full names go to a concept_synonym table with a maximum of 1000 symbols per concept name.
You can see full names if you click on the concept in Athena:

Or querying the concept_synonym table:

select * from concept_synonym WHERE concept_id IN (40756911, 40756979);

@zhuk Thanks for explaining this.
That is make sense why some of the concept_name for CPT4 codes seems cut off.
I will use the concept_synonym table to get the full names.

Thanks!


(Vojtech Huser) #5

Can the shortening of full name be indicated by some character. E.g., ~ at the end to hint the user that the string was modified.

Even better, if there is any CPT short name for all codes, we can somehow think about implementing that.


(Christian Reich) #6

Good idea. We do that for RxNorm Extension (using …). We should do it for them all. Can you add, @mik?

Yeah. We made the conscious decision of not using them, because they are pretty unintelligible if you are not into LOINC on a day-to-day basis. Downside of course is the long descriptions. But to be honest: The ones which are a long descriptions are funny anyway from a analytical perspective.
