Carotid Stenting

Question:

Is catheterization separately reported with placement of a carotid stent?

Answer:

No, all carotid stents codes (the traditional carotid stent codes 37215/37216 and the newer codes, 37217 and 37218) include catheterization of the carotid system on the same side as the stent procedure.
