Iliac Aneurysm Repair with Branched Device

May 22, 2017

Question:

Our physician treated an abdominal aortic aneurysm with a Gore Excluder graft (34802) and also an iliac aneurysm with a branced iliac device at iliac bifurcation into the hypogastric and external iliac (0254T). The hypogastric artery had severe stenosis at the origin, so he also placed a covered stent and did angioplasty. Is the hypogastric stent a billable service, or is it considered the deployment zone of the iliac branched device at bifurcation? If it is billable, would it be an extension limb 34825 (which I don't believe so) or a stent/angio with 37236?
