Laparascopic appendectomy

Provider performed laparascopic appnedectomy but during the coure the patient was revealed to have pus and feculent material in the pelvis the grunge in the pelvis area was irrigated. I see for an open appendectomy we can use 44960 for perforated appendicitis with peritonitis, would we code 44979 compared to 44960 or can we code 44970-22?
