Iliac Aneurysm Treatment with EVAR and Two Extensions

Please note this question was answered in 2014. The coding advice may or may not be outdated.

Question:

Our surgeon treated an iliac aneurysm using a unibody bifurcated endograft that was deployed on the aortic bifurcation and two Iliac extension grafts (same side). Can code 34804 be used in this type of situation, even though the patient does not have an aortic aneurysm? Code 34900 is only for tube endografts. But can we use it anyway, because of the extensions? Or should we use an unlisted code? If yes, what code should we use for the extensions?
