75630 vs. 75716 and 75625

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 The coding advice may or may not be outdated.


Would codes 36200, 75716-26, and 75625-26 be correct for the following case? Or would codes 36200 and 75630-26 be correct? "Patient placed in supine position. Bilateral groins prepped and draped in usually sterile fashion. Patient had easily palpable femoral pulses. The left common femoral artery was carefully anesthetized with 1% xylocone. The common femoral artery was punctured. A glide wire was placed under fluoroscopic guidance, and a 5 French sheath was placed over the glide wire. We then did an abdominal aortogram using 10 milliters a second of half strength contrast. The catheter was pulled down the aortic bifurcation, and we did a non-selective run-off of the bilateral lower extremities. We were concerned about the integrity of the right common femoral artery, so we did an RAO and LAO projection to look specifically at the common femoral artery. At completion all catheter wires and sheaths were removed."
