ICD Code H72.81 is a non-billable code. To code a diagnosis of this type, you must use one of the four child codes of H72.81 that describes the diagnosis 'multiple perforations of tympanic membrane' in more detail.


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.
