Code for unlisted uterine laceration

I think this code will be help.
Check on page 49 of CPT 2007:
58999 Unlisted procedure, female genital system.
Also, if it is a diagnosis, we better use ICD-9 to describe for this. The question is not clear enough to get code for this. 639.2 in ICD-9, but with what condition?. I hope it will help.

Go for 57720--Trachelorrhaphy, plastic repair of uterine cervix, vaginal approach

As per CDR "The physician inserts a speculum into the vagina to view the cervix. The physician performs a plastic suture repair of a laceration or wound on the cervix. A plastic repair also can encompass excising scar tissue or tightening an incompetent cervix."

Thank You
