Billable CodeBillable codes are sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis.
M87.338 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of other secondary osteonecrosis of left carpus. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.
The ICD code M87 is used to code Avascular necrosis
Avascular necrosis (AVN), also called osteonecrosis, bone infarction, aseptic necrosis, and ischemic bone necrosis, is cellular death (necrosis) of bone components due to interruption of the blood supply. Without blood, the bone tissue dies and the bone collapses. If avascular necrosis involves the bones of a joint, it often leads to destruction of the joint articular surfaces. (see Osteochondritis dissecans).
