My Dr. was doing surgery for draining an abscess in the abdomen and the patient had a fem-fem bypass graft that was disconnected in the right groin. He pulled the graft up and trimmed a small amount of graft back that was going to be exposed in the abscess cavity. In doing so noticed small amount of flow in the graft site and clamped and over sewed the end. I do not know what code to use in this situation. Please advise. Thank you!

I think you can use code 35907.
