Thread: wrist fractures (radius and ulna fractures)

    Default wrist fractures (radius and ulna fractures)

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hello all,

    Lt Salter DISTAL radius fracture and DISTAL ulna fracture

    Both were treated w/ closed reduction w/ manipulation

    Would this just be 25605 or 25605 for radius and unlisted for ulna...Other codes state SHAFT fractures. Dx 813.44

    Thanks for any help!

    I would choose 25605 and it includes closed manipulation of both distal radius and distal ulna so no separate code needed.

    I agree with Meggett.
