coding clinic 3rd quarter 2001 states that after initial injury and treatment it is no longer an acute fracture it is either healing a V54 code or is healed a V67 code. Also the coding guidelines tell us that during the recovery phase as in followup visits or to remove fixation it is a healing fracture, for use of the V54 codes.
