    Currently using unlisted procedure code 37799 for pta & stent of mesenteric artery, is there a more specific code to use for this procedure?

    Angioplasty is 35471, 75966 (75968 each addition'l vessel).
    Stenting is 37205, 75960.
    Also code catheterization and diagnostic angiograms as appropriate.

    Can you bill 35471 with 37205 on the same artery? I have checked and the code is not bundled but I am questioning whether you can place the stent without performing angioplasty?
