    Default endarterectomies

    AAPC: Back to School
    looking for thoughts on this area of cpt35302 to cpt35372.
    If physician does endarterectomy at common femoral and then extends
    incision to sfa to perform endarterectomy at sfa too, and then closes up.
    (all within the same entry/ incision point)

    Do you bill just the initial endarterectomy, the femoral? cpt35371 or do you
    move on to the sfa? cpt35302......??????

    35371 will be included in 35302. Only bill 35302 it has a higher RVU anyway.
