Code 37250 has been deleted (1/1/16)

There hasn't been enough information provided regarding the procedure that was performed (Can you provide a procedure note/summary? Were there modifiers submitted? Who is the payer? I'm assuming you're working in a professional fee environment).

Usually when reporting for the placement of endovascular extensions, a code from 34800-34805 (S&I 75952-26) is performed and reported separately.

Judging by your diagnosis I71.4, for non-ruptured AAA, this was the likely problem being treated (?Unless staged extension placement?).

More context is needed.
