Coronary Angiography

During angiography a blood clot came off the catheter and acutely closed the artery.

A guidwire was passed down the artery in preparation for balloon angioplasty. As soon as the wire passed down the vessel, the blood clot broke up and the artery opened up(no blockage was present and no balloon or stent was placed).

What code should I use?
