Repair of Endoleak years after EVAR

Hwa Posted Fri 19th of December, 2014 19:03:55 PM

The surgeon did an EVAR of a AAA "years ago." The patient now presents with an endoleak. A graft is placed in the iliac artery between the main body of the AAA graft and the displaced iliac limb to cover the endoleak. What dx and cpt codes should be used for this?
