Left Hip Irrigation and debridement

I always struggle with these.  Patient has left hip infection after total hip done 1 year ago.  Description : Dissection carried down through the subcutaneous tissue.  Immediately purulent material was encountered. This was tracked down to the hip prosthesis after which the prosthesis was found to be in satisfactory condition. Copious irrigation was carried forward and a thorough debridement of soft tissue, muscle, and bone was carried forward as well. The IT band was repaired utilizing a #1 Stratafix suture.

I looking at either 27030 or maybe 26991.  Thank you.
