| ICD-10 from 2011 - 2016

M87.845 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of other osteonecrosis, left finger(s). 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).

Specialty: Orthopedics
MeSH Code: D010020
ICD 9 Code: 733.4

Femur head showing a flap of cartilage (osteochondritis dissecans) due to avascular necrosis. Specimen from total hip replacement surgery.

Equivalent ICD-9 Code GENERAL EQUIVALENCE MAPPINGS (GEM)

Aseptic necrosis of bone, other (approximate match)

This is the official approximate match mapping between ICD9 and ICD10, as provided by the General Equivalency mapping crosswalk. This means that while there is no exact mapping between this ICD10 code M87.845 and a single ICD9 code, 733.49 is an approximate match for comparison and conversion purposes.
