ICD-10-CM Code S12.000A
Unspecified displaced fracture of first cervical vertebra, initial encounter for closed fracture

BILLABLE
Billable Code

| ICD-10 from 2011 - 2016

S12.000A is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of unspecified displaced fracture of first cervical vertebra, initial encounter for closed fracture. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.


The ICD code S120 is used to code Jefferson fracture

A Jefferson fracture is a bone fracture of the anterior and posterior arches of the C1 vertebra, though it may also appear as a three- or two-part fracture. The fracture may result from an axial load on the back of the head or hyperextension of the neck (e.g. caused by diving), causing a posterior break, and may be accompanied by a break in other parts of the cervical spine.

Specialty: Emergency Medicine
ICD 9 Code: 805.01

Equivalent ICD-9 Code GENERAL EQUIVALENCE MAPPINGS (GEM)

Closed fracture of first cervical vertebra (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 S12.000A and a single ICD9 code, 805.01 is an approximate match for comparison and conversion purposes.
