I wish to code the presence of a Spinal Cord Stimulator used for the management of angina. I am not sure whether Z97.8 Presence of other specified devices or possibly Z96.8 Presence of other specified functional implants would be the appropriate code to use.
Follow the ICD-10-AM Alphabetic Index. The most appropriate Z code to assign would be Z96.8 Presence of other specified functional implants. Be sure that the inclusion of this code meets ACS 0002 Additional diagnoses.
