S52.309C is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of unspecified fracture of shaft of unspecified radius, initial encounter for open fracture type IIIA, IIIB, or IIIC. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.


The ICD code S523 is used to code Galeazzi fracture

The Galeazzi fracture is a fracture of the radius with dislocation of the distal radioulnar joint. It classically involves an isolated fracture of the junction of the distal third and middle third of the radius with associated subluxation or dislocation of the distal radio-ulnar joint, the injury disrupts the forearm axis joint.

MeSH Code: 68011885

Equivalent ICD-9 Code GENERAL EQUIVALENCE MAPPINGS (GEM)

Open fracture of shaft of radius (alone) (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 S52.309C and a single ICD9 code, 813.31 is an approximate match for comparison and conversion purposes.
