Our vascular surgeon did a single intervention on a lesion that was at the juncture of the femoral/popliteal and tibial/peritoneal territories. Can we charge for two interventions?
Lesions that extend across the margins of one vessel vascular territory into another, but can be treated with a single therapy are reported with a single intervention code.
