Default coaptite injection,cystoscopy

How would you code the following for stress incontinence? Using IV sedation a 21 French rigid cystoscope was inserted into the urethra anda dvanced to the level of the bladder neck w/o difficulty. Two full syringes of coaptite were injected at 6 and 3 o'clock. Bulking was noted. There was some coaptite in the bladder noted as well. the scope was removed and patient transferred to pacu in stable condition.

Would it be: 52000, 51715-59, L8606 (or L8603)?
