    Default Common Iliac Artery Stenosis?

    Hi there,
    Is it 447.1 for common iliac artery stenosis or 440.21; am confused.
    When I look it up, it's quite vague

    Please advise. Thank u

    447.1 seems more appropriate and noncommittal with the presented info.

    Common Iliac Artery Stenosis-447.1 is more appropriate code.
