Ortho coders, how would you code this scenario?
Removal of foreign body right patellar inferior pole and repair of inferior pole patellar tendon

6 year old female had pellet gun shot into her right knee, fb was embedded within the inferior pole of patella. The joint was not entered. Open removal of fb and tendon repair.
I'm looking at 20103 and 27380.

What do you think?

Thanks!
