Thread: Distal Embolic Protection

    Question Distal Embolic Protection

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can we bill for using distal embolic protection when angioplastying a renal artery or Atherectomy on the SFA or Popliteal? I know it is sometimes used when stenting the Carotid but my doc is now doing this for angoiplasty and atherectomy?? Any ideas??

    my thoughts are that it would be included in the procedure.
