    Default Hope this helps

    Assuming that the doctor is going in from the left fem artery over bifurcation to the right side this is how I would probably code these. However without actually seeing the op report I don't claim that these are completely correct for this surgery.

    (1) (2) 75625 (Abdominal Aortogram) This is usually shot from above renals
    (3) (4) 75716 (Bilateral extremeties pictures)
    (5) 35474 & 75962

    The PTA could possibly be billed twice if there is sufficient documentation to prove that these are two seperate lesions in the SFA. If it's just one long one then only bill PTA once.

    Hope this helps alittle.
