Patient had a DC ICD Implanted and removal of a Subcutaneous ICD removed with a separate incision. Would I use code 33241 or 0580T for removal of the SubQ ICD?

For removal of a subcutaneous ICD (S-ICD) genertor-only removal, the procedure is 33241.
If subcutaneous electrode also removed code additionally procedure 33272.

0508T is for a substernal ICD generator-only removal.
