Selective Angio 75716 appose to 75774 How would this be coded?

Please note this question was answered in 2017. The coding advice may or may not be outdated.


How is this coded correct? I am confused by the word "selective". Code 75774 is an add-on code, so would I just report code 75716 in this case? I do not see 75630 or 75625 documented either. Please advise. "Local anesthetic was administered and access obtained to the left common femoral artery via the modified Seldinger technique. A short 6 French sheath was inserted into the left common femoral artery, and selective angiography was performed. Using a RIM catheter, an angled Glidewire was positioned in the contralateral SFA, and the RIM was then exchanged for a Glide catheter. Selective angiography was performed in the contralateral SFA (3rd order angiogram with angiography of the trifurcation). Right peripheral runoff was also performed. Angiographic findings as above."
