Hi, I'm coding an op note for a patient with an open chest which requires daily washout of the chest. What's the best code for Mediastinal washout and exploration? I was looking at CPT 35820-58 but it seems like it doesn't fit. Should I add modifier 52 for reduce services since there weren't any hemorrhage, thrombosis or infection. Or is there a better code?

Thank You in advance.
