    Default Femoral aneurysm repair

    Hi,

    My doctor did an endovascular repair of the femoral aneurysm. I am finding nothing other than for iliac and AAA. Do any of you have an idea it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Becky

    Take a look at 442.3 Other aneurysm of artery of lower extremity

    I don't believe there is a specific CPT code for endovascular repair of a popliteal or femoral artery aneurysm. This seems to be a gray area for us as well. Depending on the insurance carrier they may want unlisted procedure code 37799 or they may accept 37205.

    Hi,

    You can use 34825 for repair of illiac aneurysam.
