Fracture Vs Injury

  1. Default Fracture Vs Injury
    Medical Coding Books
    Can anyone suggest me the ICD-9 code for -
    Crush fracture of the distal phalanx of the right great toe

    Confused if Dx should be distal phalanx fracture or crush injury.


  2. Default
    Both can be coded....

  3. #3
    And if you knew how and where the injury occurred you could code the E-Code too.
