Please help....Our physician did a cut down of the neck and placed a stent into the carotid artery. We cannot code 37215-37216 because it is not percutaneous and cannot use 37207 because CPT guidelines exclude the carotid arteries. Would you use 37799 for the procedure?

I agree with you for 37799.
