Peripheral angioplasty help

    Can anyone help me with coding the following scenario?

    aortoiliac angiogram with bilat runoff followed by percutaneous angioplasty from a vein graft going from the common femoral artery to the below-the-knee popliteal artery, angioplasty of the common femoral artery, and angioplasty of the profunda artery.

    Thanks so much.

    do you have the whole report? Are you questioning how many angioplasties you would do? Based on this, I would think 2. 75962/35474 for the fem/pop graft and common femoral angioplasty and 75964/35474 for the profunda femoris artery.

    I guess I'm questioning how to code for an angioplasty of the bypass graft more than anything.

    My thinking is since the bypass graft involves the femoral and popliteal arteries you would use the fem/pop angioplasty (75962/35474)
