In this add–on procedure, the provider restores the blood supply in an additional ipsilateral narrowed or blocked unilateral iliac artery through endovascular, open or percutaneous approach after the same procedure in an initial vessel on the same side. He performs this procedure with transluminal stent placement, a surgical procedure in which the provider places a stent at the site of occlusion, or blockage, in the blood vessel and expands it against the narrow portion of the wall of the vessel. Use this code when the provider performs this procedure on each additional vessel. This code includes the angioplasty procedure when the provider performs it within same vessel.
