Which is the correct CPT code for exploratory laparotomy with small bowel and cecal resection with primary anastomosis 44120 or 44160? for ischemic small bowel

Code 44160 (colectomy with removal of terminal ileum and ileocolostomy) should be used when the physician removes a segment of the colon and terminal ileum and performs an anastomosis between the remaining ileum and colon.
