Short Description:Age-related osteopor w current path fracture, unsp ank/ft

Not Valid for Submission

ICD-10 M80.079 is a "header" nonspecific and non-billable code code, consider using a code with a higher level of specificity for a diagnosis of age-related osteoporosis with current pathological fracture, unspecified ankle and foot. The code is NOT valid for the year 2019 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.

Consider the following ICD-10 codes with a higher level of specificity:

  • M80.079A - Age-related osteoporosis with current pathological fracture, unspecified ankle and foot, initial encounter for fracture
  • M80.079D - Age-related osteoporosis with current pathological fracture, unspecified ankle and foot, subsequent encounter for fracture with routine healing
  • M80.079G - Age-related osteoporosis with current pathological fracture, unspecified ankle and foot, subsequent encounter for fracture with delayed healing
  • M80.079K - Age-related osteoporosis with current pathological fracture, unspecified ankle and foot, subsequent encounter for fracture with nonunion
  • M80.079P - Age-related osteoporosis with current pathological fracture, unspecified ankle and foot, subsequent encounter for fracture with malunion
  • M80.079S - Age-related osteoporosis with current pathological fracture, unspecified ankle and foot, sequela

Code Classification

  • Diseases of the musculoskeletal system and connective tissue (M00–M99)
    • Disorders of bone density and structure (M80-M85)
      • Osteoporosis with current pathological fracture (M80)

Diagnostic Related Groups

The Diagnostic Related Groups (DRGs) are a patient classification scheme which provides a means of relating the type of patients a hospital treats. The DRGs divides all possible principal diagnoses into mutually exclusive principal diagnosis areas referred to as Major Diagnostic Categories (MDC). The diagnosis code M80.079 is grouped in the following groups for version MS-DRG V36.0 applicable from 10/01/2018 through 09/30/2019.

  • 542 - PATHOLOGICAL FRACTURES AND MUSCULOSKELETAL AND CONNECTIVE TISSUE MALIGNANCY WITH MCC

Information for Patients


Fractures

Also called: Broken bone

A fracture is a break, usually in a bone. If the broken bone punctures the skin, it is called an open or compound fracture. Fractures commonly happen because of car accidents, falls, or sports injuries. Other causes are low bone density and osteoporosis, which cause weakening of the bones. Overuse can cause stress fractures, which are very small cracks in the bone.

Symptoms of a fracture are

  • Intense pain
  • Deformity - the limb looks out of place
  • Swelling, bruising, or tenderness around the injury
  • Numbness and tingling
  • Problems moving a limb

You need to get medical care right away for any fracture. An x-ray can tell if your bone is broken. You may need to wear a cast or splint. Sometimes you need surgery to put in plates, pins or screws to keep the bone in place.

Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is a disease that thins and weakens the bones. Your bones become fragile and break easily, especially the bones in the hip, spine, and wrist. In the United States, millions of people either already have osteoporosis or are at high risk due to low bone mass.

Anyone can develop osteoporosis, but it is more common in older women. Risk factors include

  • Getting older
  • Being small and thin
  • Having a family history of osteoporosis
  • Taking certain medicines
  • Being a white or Asian woman
  • Having low bone density

Osteoporosis is a silent disease. You might not know you have it until you break a bone. A bone mineral density test is the best way to check your bone health.

To keep bones strong, eat a diet rich in calcium and vitamin D, exercise, and do not smoke. If needed, medicines can also help. It is also important to try to avoid falling down. Falls are the number one cause of fractures in older adults.

ICD-10 Footnotes

General Equivalence Map Definitions
The ICD-10 and ICD-9 GEMs are used to facilitate linking between the diagnosis codes in ICD-9-CM and the new ICD-10-CM code set. The GEMs are the raw material from which providers, health information vendors and payers can derive specific applied mappings to meet their needs.

  • Approximate Flag - The approximate flag is on, indicating that the relationship between the code in the source system and the code in the target system is an approximate equivalent.
  • No Map Flag - The no map flag indicates that a code in the source system is not linked to any code in the target system.
  • Combination Flag - The combination flag indicates that more than one code in the target system is required to satisfy the full equivalent meaning of a code in the source system.
