I need help coding this surgery--the op report listed below:

The wound appeared tunneled, just inferior to the neurovascular complex. There was some venous bleeding noted. There was a small vessell that had been transected. This vessel was ligated with 3-0 silk suture. The artery was identified and did appear to have some hematoma in the wall. There was als a small branch of the artery which was transected. This was ligated with 3-0 silk suture.

Please advise on the cpt codes and dx's, too

Thanks :)
