My doc is stating patient has "long thoracic nerve neuropraxia" he is saying this is a stretch injury with NO open wound.

What dx code would you use??


The nerve injury codes state "with open wound"

Thanks

Look at 954.8 and see if it can work for you; definition injury to other specified nerves of trunk
