pt had duplex scan of extracranial arteries, unilateral/limited study - RT subclavian artery. The findings state that mild plaque imaged from origin for approximately 4cm.
I looked up plaque
then arteriosclerosis

I feel like this is an extremity artery. Pre-cerebral arteries are arteries that go to the cerebrum I thought.

Would this be 440.29 for extremities specified site or pre-cerebral 433.80??
Thanks!!

ICD for subclavian stenosis

I think 435.2-subclavian steal syndrome will be suitable ICD code for stenosis of subclavian artery.
