ICD-9 Help

  1. #1
    Default ICD-9 Help

    I am looking for the ICD-9 code for rupture of bicep tendon (not long head).

  2. #2
    I would normally use 727.62 (even though it states long head), I also use 727.69 when there is nothing more specific.

    I use 841.8 if distal and if in shoulder but not the long head, I use 840.8. (of course these are for the acute ruptures)
