  • S32.110 - Nondisplaced Zone I fracture of sacrum
  • S32.110A - Nondisplaced ... initial encounter for closed fracture
  • S32.110B - Nondisplaced ... initial encounter for open fracture
  • S32.110D - Nondisplaced ... subsequent encounter for fracture with routine healing
  • S32.110G - Nondisplaced ... subsequent encounter for fracture with delayed healing
  • S32.110K - Nondisplaced ... subsequent encounter for fracture with nonunion
  • S32.110S - Nondisplaced ... sequela
  • S32.111 - Minimally displaced Zone I fracture of sacrum
  • S32.111A - Minimally displaced ... initial encounter for closed fracture
  • S32.111B - Minimally displaced ... initial encounter for open fracture
  • S32.111D - Minimally displaced ... subsequent encounter for fracture with routine healing
  • S32.111G - Minimally displaced ... subsequent encounter for fracture with delayed healing
  • S32.111K - Minimally displaced ... subsequent encounter for fracture with nonunion

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

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.

Spine Injuries and Disorders

Your backbone, or spine, is made up of 26 bone discs called vertebrae. The vertebrae protect your spinal cord and allow you to stand and bend. A number of problems can change the structure of the spine or damage the vertebrae and surrounding tissue. They include

Spinal diseases often cause pain when bone changes put pressure on the spinal cord or nerves. They can also limit movement. Treatments differ by disease, but sometimes they include back braces and surgery.
