Vasodilator or catheter placement for acute mi treatment

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 The coding advice may or may not be outdated.


Our doctor is wanting to charge an acute MI intervention (92941), but the following text is from the report and this was all that was performed. "Placement of Pronto catheter intracoronary in the ramus intermedius with direct delivery of vasodilators including nitroglycerin, veramil, and nipride with improvement of vasospasm. Intervention on the ramus intermedius was performed as detailed above with no balloon angioplasty or stent placement." Would any of this warrant the billing of 92941?
