    Question Capsule
    What do you mean by an abdominal wall capsule? Do you mean a cyst on the ab. wall or the capsules near the kidneys?

    As far as the drainage of a seroma. It is 10140 for the I & D of a seroma but not if the seroma is in the stomach.

    If i had more info I can help you out.
