What code would you use for a cecostomy without guidance?

"In CPT, there is a code for change of gastrostomy tube without imaging or endoscopic guidance, however, there is no similar code for removal of cecostomy tube without guidance.
You may use an unlisted code - 44799, 'Unlisted procedure, intestine'.
