    Default femoral-anterior tibial bypass graft question
    New Call-to-action
    When a physician does a PTA or stent of a peripheral bypass graft, are arterial codes 37220-37235 or venous codes 37238-37239 used?

    Thank you!

    Either arterial lower extremity intervention codes, or arterial stent code for upper extremity.
