    Default Kidney Fracture dx???????

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone have any idea what ICD-9 code would be used for a kidney fx?

    Try 866.?? section. If that is all you have from the physician I would have him/her clarify.

    Renal fracture is most common with the application of larger 3.4-mm cryoprobes in
    the synchronous and asynchronous setting.Under standard application, smaller (1.47-
    mm) cryoprobes result in little renal fracture or bleeding. The use of the guillotine
    technique is associated with a greater risk of renal fracture.

    Key Words:
    cryoablation, renal, fracture, complications.

    Hops this helps....

    The other name for renal fracture is renal laceration. so, the code what Ivoryto said is correct but assign the 4th digit as per the situation and the fifth as 3. ie 866.x3
    Hope this helps
