    You’re correct. Assign 37220 for iliac (New Category I CPT codes)

    Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) ILIAC-37220
    Each additional vessel +37222

    Common iliac branches into external iliac and “internal iliac” (formerly known as the hypogastric artery)

    Pls note:
    RE: Your cpt choice 35471- It should to be "35473 iliac" instead; Anyways Code Deleted 2011-01-01.
