pseudoaneurysm and stenoses separate vessels, same leg

Date: Sep 8, 2021

Question:

I understand if there is a pseudoaneurysm of the femoral artery and stenoses of another femoral artery, we report either 37236 or 37226, but not both. But what about the case where say the popliteal artery has a pseudoaneurysm and a stent is placed, and one of the femoral arteries has a hemodynamically significant stenosis and a stent is placed? Can we report both codes or just one?
