H72.12 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of attic perforation of tympanic membrane, left ear. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.
The ICD code H72 is used to code Perforated eardrum
A perforated eardrum or punctured eardrum is a rupture or perforation (hole) of the eardrum which can occur as a result of otitis media (ear infection), trauma (e.g. by trying to clean the ear with sharp instruments), explosion, loud noise or surgery (accidental creation of a rupture). Flying with a severe cold can also cause perforation due to changes in air pressure and blocked eustachian tubes resulting from the cold. This is especially true on landing.
