Equivalent ICD-9 Code GENERAL EQUIVALENCE MAPPINGS (GEM)

Closed fracture of epiphysis (separation) (upper) of neck of femur (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 S72.022A and a single ICD9 code, 820.01 is an approximate match for comparison and conversion purposes.
