Stents with delivery system (C1874, C1876, C2625) - Stents packaged with delivery systems generally include the following components: stent mounted or unmounted on a balloon angioplasty catheter, introducer, and sheath. These components should not be reported separately.

Temporary non-coronary stent (C2617, C2625) - Usually composed of a substance, such as plastic or other non-absorbable material, designed to permit removal. Typically, this type of stent is placed for a period of less than one year.

Tissue marker (C1879) - A material that is placed in subcutaneous or parenchymal tissue (may also include bone) for radiopaque identification of an anatomic site. These markers are distinct from topical skin markers, which are positioned on the surface of the skin to serve as anatomical landmarks.

Transluminal angioplasty catheter (C1725, C1885) - Designed to dilate stenotic blood vessels (arteries and veins). For vascular use, the terms “balloon dilatation catheter” and “transluminal angioplasty catheter” are frequently used interchangeably. [For the reporting of non-vascular balloon dilatation catheters, see the category "Balloon dilatation catheter" (C1726).] Transvenous VDD single pass pacemaker lead (C1779) - A transvenous pacemaker lead that paces and senses in the ventricle and senses in the atrium.

Urinary incontinence repair device (C1771, C2631) - Used to attach or insert a sling graft for the purpose of strengthening the pelvic floor. It consists of the device components used to deliver (suprapubically or transvaginally) and/or fixate (via permanent sutures or bone anchors) the sling graft. The device may or may not be packaged with a sling graft. Report the appropriate category for a device with or without a sling graft. NOTE: For reporting connective tissue (human or nonhuman) when used to treat urinary incontinence, see the category “Connective tissue, human” (C1762) or “Connective tissue, non-human” (C1763). For reporting mesh when used to treat urinary incontinence, see the category “Mesh” (C1781).

Vascular closure device (implantable/insertable) (C1760) - Used to achieve hemostasis at arterial puncture sites following invasive or interventional procedures using biologic substances (e.g., collagen) or suture through the tissue tract.

Vector mapping catheter (C1732) - Refers to an electrophysiology catheter with an "in-plane" orthogonal array of electrodes. This catheter is used to locate the source of a focal arrhythmia.
