Difference between 92973 and 92975

Please note this question was answered in 2017. The coding advice may or may not be outdated.


I have a note where an AngioJet thrombectomy was performed during an AMI, and the provider see-saws through the note describing it as reholytic thrombectomy vs. reholytic thrombolysis. I'm assuming that treatment of a thrombus with an AngioJet in the standard fashion is considered 92973, and in this note I'm not seeing a description of the service that looks like true thrombolysis to me. Can you describe the details that may be seen in a note if 92975 was performed?
