Left knee medial femoral condyle microfracture

  1. Question Left knee medial femoral condyle microfracture
    Medical Coding Books
    I am needing an ICD-9 code for left knee medial femoral condyle microfracture. Would I code 821.21? This was caused by a crushing injury. Thank you

    Microfracture is usually a procedure. If it's a closed femur condyle fracture, then 821.21 would work. Query your doctor, it may be a stress fracture.
