Coding Percutaneous Transluminal Angioplasty

I'm new at coding cardiac procedure codes and I need a little help.

When coding a PTA or PTCA and I'm comprehending the ICD 10 PSC look up in the Index and the Tabular sections, I'm confused when I come across an encounter to code the specific site and/or sites.

Is there some information you can give me about coding different site(s), and does this mean different arteries also.

Any information on how to code these is greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
Pamela, CPC
