If superficial hematoma or abscess your code would go. If it invovled soft tissues of the thorax then i feel 21501 would be appropriate.
I doubt you can have a capsulectomy code separately for this-hematomas removing ,cleaning or sheath like membrane /pseudocapsule/deep escavation - in other words, could merit to increased work - that is may be appending with modifier 22.
Does any one have another openion than this .You are most welcome
