What CPT code do you use for extending an existing sphincterotomy?
What about dilating an existing sphincterotomy?

I recommend using 43262 for existing sphincterotomy
43271- Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP); with endoscopic retrograde balloon dilation of ampulla, biliary and/or pancreatic duct(s)
When done with sphincterotomy, also use 43262)
