Coding Lower extremity revascularizations: Tibial arteries

January 18, 2018

Question:
For an angioplasty or stenting in the tibia vessels how is the tibio-peroneal trunk coded?

Answer:
The tibio-peroneal trunk is considered part of the peroneal and posterior tibial vessel. It is not included in the anterior tibial. Therefore if angioplasty and stenting was performed in the tibio-peroenal trunk and the anterior tibial artery, codes 37230 and the add on code +37324.
