FNE12B Perkutan trombektomi eller embolektomi i koronararterie FNE22B Perkutan trombektomi eller embolektomi i aortokoronar bypass fra a. mammaria int.
Unfortunately, in Norway the new radiology codes (NCRP) does not follow the logic of the rest of the NCSP codes. Therefore the codes FNE12B and FNE22B do not describe coronary bypass. However these codes should be linked to similar percutaneous interventions and not to a code for open surgery.

FNE12B and FNE22B are linked to FNSG12 'Percutaneous transluminal embolectomy of coronary artery'. Thus they are not linked to open interventions.
FNSG12 is an OR=2 intervention with procedrue properties 05S16 'Other percutaneous cardiovascular procedures' and 05S25 'Percutaneous dilatation of coronary arteries'
