Thread: Right external into common iliac stent placement

  1. #1

    Default Right external into common iliac stent placement

    provider performed stent placement in the external iliac artery. He covered that stent using a larger stent with a balloon to force dilation. There was significant dissection near the second deployed stent, so he deployed another stent in the internal iliac artery. After the stenting was done he advanced a mulltipurpose catheter into the common iliac artery and performed an angiograph to make sure there was no flow limitations. All of this was does percutaneously. I believe 37205 and 37206 are appropriate for the stent placements, but what do I use for the angiograph.

    Thank you

    In the CPT book, under the code 37205 & 37206 it references which radiology code to use. And under the radiology code it references 37205 & 37206. check it out....

    The Iliac Revasularization codes are the new 37220-37223 codes... 37205 EXCLUDES iliac

    hope this helps..
