    Default ICD 9 Ankle Ligament Tear

    Now I count on the Podiatry Forum to guide me and you guys do. Now I have a question I always have trouble with this: and I can never remember the diagnosis for this.

    Tendon Tear

    Ligament Tear

    Tendon Rupture


    Please Help.

    They all fall under the sprains and strains of joints and adjacent muscles (840-848) so I would use the ICD-9 code 845.00 for an ankle ligament tear.
