    Default Look in your CPT book
    If you are doing a test, don't you have a CPT book in which to look up the possible answers? This is what you would be doing if you were actually coding (i.e. looking it up in either a traditional paper CPT book, or through an on-line CPT resource such as Encoder Pro).

    I could not find 37725. I think its a typo and they meant 37225.
    37224 Revascularization, endovascular, open or percutaneous, femoral, popliteal artery(s), unilateral; with transluminal angioplasty (this one does not include atherectomy)
    37225 Revascularization, endovascular, open or percutaneous, femoral, popliteal artery(s), unilateral; with atherectomy, includes angioplasty within the same vessel, when performed.

    Correct answer could be option for, but 75962 is included in 37225 per CCI
