This is true if it is occlusion with emboli or thrombus. If you look under occlusion-arteries of extremities lower it says 444.22 but right under that is says without thrombus or emboli see arteriosclerosis 440.20.

So it depends on what it is occluded with.

444.22

PLease clarify whether we can considered 444.22 for arterial occulusive disease not mentioned whether it is emboli or arteriosclerotic... when we can code 440.20?
