sounds like it would be 37184 (Primary percutaneous transluminal mechanical thrombectomy, noncoronary, arterial or arterial bypass graft, including fluoroscopic guidance and intraprocedural pharmacological thrombolytic injection(s); initial vessel), but without a report I can't tell you for sure.

I'm not sure about the 75630/75710 combo...75630 includes the abdomen and bilateral lower extremities. If the abdomen was done and then the catheter "pulled down to the bifurcation" to image the lower extremities, I would break it up into 75625 and 75716 or 75710. Then with the stent(75960)and angioplasty(75962) you would need a -59 on the 75716 or 75710.
