Internal Carotid Stenosis endareterectomy with Stent

Date: Aug 11, 2021

Question:

Two vascular surgeons performed left carotid endarterectomy with patch for severe carotid stenosis. For the areas of stenosis they couldn't endarterectomize they placed a 6x5 Viabahn stent. Can we bill both 35301 and 37215, or the stent is included with the endarterectomy procedure?
