    It would be most helpful if you could post the OP note to ensure coding accuracy? Without that, I can only point you in the right direction based on what you put. I would take a look at CPT code(s) 35001-35152 OR 35201-35286. For the thrombectomies if they aren't included with the other codes, take a look at 34001-34203, artery.

    And if by chance this is for an Endovascular AAA then look at 34800-34834. With those you can also bill your aortic cath placement(s): 36200-RT, LT or 50; and IVUS 37250/75945-26 & 37251/74946-26.
