CPT coding

Complete outpatient billing newby here. I was handed a sheet (NSQIP) of various surgeries and their corresponding cpt codes. Most of these surgeries require inpatient stays (CABG, TKR). The requirement is to determine counts. I was under the impression CPTs are outpatient and inpatient uses ICD 9 codes. Why would these surgeries contain CPTs and not ICD9 Procedure codes? Thank you for any help!
