Lucky for you to be new this year! The peripheral vascular revascularization codes have changed this year. It is much more easier to code as we went from 4-6 codes down to 1-3 and sometimes only one if you are working in the fem/pop area. If you have a 2011 CPT book, read starting on page 208. All the green text is the new and revised text for this year. It will really help you to read this and try to understand, it is a straightforward explanation.
The example you gave, cpt code 37226 would be all you would use for this procedure~ Stent of the femeropopliteal with or without PTA(open or percutaneous approach) Last year, the codes we used were 37205,36246,75960, etc....
Hope this will help you, is seems alot more complicated than it is.
