    It is perforated and into the abdominal cavity into the peritoneum. it is no longer an object of the uterus. I would have a set of option for this situation.
    1) 49329- unlisted laparoscopic procedure; abdomen, peritoneum and omentum.
    2) 49402- because I would consider this as a foreign body in the peritoneal cavity and the removal.
    3)58660- if encased and adhesiolysis needed.
    However I feel that we need more info from the operative notes about the place it was embedded to be more specific with the code .
    Thank you
