Hello Everyone, It's not too often that our facility removes external fixators, so I'm not sure how I should code the dx for a painful external fixator. I know for painful internal hardware, it would be T84.84XA, and all of the other T codes use the term internal. What ICD-10 code would best fit? Thank you in advance!
