Collection and usage attributes

Guide for use:Help on this term

More than one procedure can be recorded. Record all codes that apply.

Codes '88' and '99' in combination cannot be used in multiple entries.

CODE 06     Reperfusion: primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI)

Primary PCI relates to balloon angioplasty and/or stent implantation for reperfusion therapy of a ST-segment-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI).

CODE 07     Reperfusion: rescue percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI)

Rescue PCI relates to a balloon angioplasty and/or stent implantation that is performed following failed fibrinolysis in people with continuing or recurrent myocardial ischaemia.

CODE 18     Revascularisation: percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI)

Revascularisation PCI relates to the restoration of blood flow through balloon angioplasty and/or stent implantation outside the setting of myocardial salvage for STEMI. Revascularisation PCI may be performed on a person following STEMI where there is objective evidence of spontaneous or inducible ischaemia or hameodynamic instability. Revascularisation PCI may also be performed on a person with high-risk non-ST-segment-elevation acute coronary syndrome.

When read in conjunction with Person—clinical procedure timing, code N, this metadata item provides information on the procedure(s) provided to a patient prior to or during this presentation.

When read in conjunction with Person—acute coronary syndrome risk stratum, code N, codes 01, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 10 and 18 of this metadata item provide information for risk stratification.

Where codes 06, 07 and 18 have been recorded please also record Person - percutaneous coronary intervention procedure, code N.
