February 1, 2018

What codes are used for stenting of the lower extremity veins? Can the 37220-37235 be used?

No, the 3720-37235 series of codes are specifically for treatment of arterial occlusion. For venous stenting use 37238,transcatheter placement of an intravascular stent(s), open or percutaneous, including all supervision and interpretation and including all angioplasty within the same vessel, when performed; initial vein and 37239 for each additional vein.
