Short Description:Dislocation of unspecified lumbar vertebra
Long Description:Dislocation of unspecified lumbar vertebra

Not Valid for Submission

ICD-10 S33.101 is a "header" nonspecific and non-billable code code, consider using a code with a higher level of specificity for a diagnosis of dislocation of unspecified lumbar vertebra. 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:

  • S33.101A - Dislocation of unspecified lumbar vertebra, initial encounter
  • S33.101D - Dislocation of unspecified lumbar vertebra, subsequent encounter
  • S33.101S - Dislocation of unspecified lumbar vertebra, sequela

Code Classification

  • Injury, poisoning and certain other consequences of external causes (S00–T98)
    • Injuries to the abdomen, lower back, lumbar spine, pelvis and external genitals (S30-S39)
      • Disloc & sprain of joints & ligaments of lumbar spin & pelv (S33)

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 S33.101 is grouped in the following groups for version MS-DRG V36.0 applicable from 10/01/2018 through 09/30/2019.

  • 551 - MEDICAL BACK PROBLEMS WITH MCC
  • 552 - MEDICAL BACK PROBLEMS WITHOUT MCC
  • 562 - FRACTURE, SPRAIN, STRAIN AND DISLOCATION EXCEPT FEMUR, HIP, PELVIS AND THIGH WITH MCC
  • 563 - FRACTURE, SPRAIN, STRAIN AND DISLOCATION EXCEPT FEMUR, HIP, PELVIS AND THIGH WITHOUT MCC

Information for Patients


Dislocations

Dislocations are joint injuries that force the ends of your bones out of position. The cause is often a fall or a blow, sometimes from playing a contact sport. You can dislocate your ankles, knees, shoulders, hips, elbows and jaw. You can also dislocate your finger and toe joints. Dislocated joints often are swollen, very painful and visibly out of place. You may not be able to move it.

A dislocated joint is an emergency. If you have one, seek medical attention. Treatment depends on which joint you dislocate and the severity of the injury. It might include manipulations to reposition your bones, medicine, a splint or sling, and rehabilitation. When properly repositioned, a joint will usually function and move normally again in a few weeks. Once you dislocate a shoulder or kneecap, you are more likely to dislocate it again. Wearing protective gear during sports may help prevent dislocations.

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

  • Infections
  • Injuries
  • Tumors
  • Conditions, such as ankylosing spondylitis and scoliosis
  • Bone changes that come with age, such as spinal stenosis and herniated disks

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.

  • Compression fractures of the back (Medical Encyclopedia)
  • Foraminotomy (Medical Encyclopedia)
  • Kyphosis (Medical Encyclopedia)
  • Laminectomy (Medical Encyclopedia)
  • Lordosis (Medical Encyclopedia)
  • Spinal fusion (Medical Encyclopedia)
  • Spine surgery - discharge (Medical Encyclopedia)
  • Spondylolisthesis (Medical Encyclopedia)

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.
