code for LT carotid angioplasty?

Lynn Posted Sat 04th of December, 2010 02:35:49 AM

An OPEN balloon angioplasty was done on the LT common carotid artery when an endarterectomy had failed to finish the job. Can not find a code for the carotid angioplasty.

Does the procedure include Stenting also ?

There is no code specific for Carotid angioplasty so 35475 is commonly used.

No stenting... So thanks, '35475' is definetly better than unspecified.
