Default ICD-9 code for Fractured testicle

Hello,
My doctor performed a scrotal exploration and repair of Bilateral fractured testicles, I was going to use CPT 54670 with the bilateral modifier. The question is that I can’t find an ICD-9 code for fractured testicles (a traumatic disruption of the tunica albuginea of both testes from blunt trauma). Any ideas on the ICD-9 code?

Thanks

What about 926.0 (external injury) or 867.6 (internal injury)

Did you find an ICD-9 code for this case? Did you look at 959.1_?
