What CPT codes would you use for this surgery

Exclusion of esophageal and gastric segments around markedly disrupted esophagogastric anastomosis. The right thoracotomy wound was re-opened. With marked empyema and severe contamination and near total disruption of the anastomosis, reapir was not feasible. The gastric segment was exculded using a stapler. A 2-0 Prolene Suture used to close off esophageal segment. A second 2-0 Prolene suture used to reinforce initial closure of esophagus. Bioglue to close off some pleural tears. Chest tubes placed for drainage. The pt was closed. First sgy was done elsewhere.
