| ICD-10 from 2011 - 2016

M43.8X7 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of other specified deforming dorsopathies, lumbosacral region. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.


The ICD code M43 is used to code Spondyloarthropathy

Spondyloarthropathy or spondyloarthrosis refers to any joint disease of the vertebral column. As such, it is a class or category of diseases rather than a single, specific entity. It differs from spondylopathy, which is a disease of the vertebra itself. However, many conditions involve both spondylopathy and spondyloarthropathy.
