I need some help with an ICD-9 code.
The Diagnosis is Foreign body foot, the note states patient stepped on "something".
Above is all the information that was given. Does anyone have any idea about the ICD-9 code?

Hi Amanda:

Look at the open wound of the foot, complicated and the superficial injury of the foot and toes (917.6 or 917.7) codes. Is there a procedure note from which you can pull more info?
