CODE 6     Planned Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG)

This code is used coded when a readmission and CABG is planned, i.e, not precipitated by a recurrent ischaemic event.  If a recurrent ischaemic event precipitates a readmission with an associated CABG undertaken, one of codes 1-4 should be coded.
