    Question 37231
    Exam Training Packages
    My physician performed a long procedure on:
    1. the left infrapopliteal at the tibioperoneal trunk with atherectomy
    2. percutaneous transluminal angioplasty
    3. Stenting X2 - 1 in tibioperoneal trunk and 1 tibial artery

    I have coded this as 37231-22, can I bill anything extra since 2 stents were placed?

    No, it's the procedure, not the number of stents placed that you bill.
