T22.729A is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of corrosion of third degree of unspecified elbow, initial encounter. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.
The ICD code T22 is used to code Burn
A burn is a type of injury to skin , or other tissues, caused by heat, electricity, chemicals, friction, or radiation. Burns that affect only the superficial skin layers are known as superficial or first-degree burns. When the injury extends into some of the underlying layers, it is described as a partial-thickness or second-degree burn. In a full-thickness or third-degree burn, the injury extends to all layers of the skin. A fourth-degree burn additionally involves injury to deeper tissues, such as muscle, tendons, or bone.
