S36.13XS is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of injury of bile duct, sequela. The code S36.13XS is valid during the fiscal year 2021 from October 01, 2020 through September 30, 2021 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.
The ICD-10-CM code S36.13XS might also be used to specify conditions or terms like bile duct injury with open wound into cavity, bile duct tear, bile duct/gallbladder injury with open wound into cavity, contusion of bile duct, hemorrhage of bile duct , injury of bile duct, etc. The code is exempt from present on admission (POA) reporting for inpatient admissions to general acute care hospitals.
S36.13XS is a sequela code, includes a 7th character and should be used for complications that arise as a direct result of a condition like injury of bile duct. According to ICD-10-CM Guidelines a "sequela" code should be used for chronic or residual conditions that are complications of an initial acute disease, illness or injury. The most common sequela is pain. Usually, two diagnosis codes are needed when reporting sequela. The first code describes the nature of the sequela while the second code describes the sequela or late effect.
The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Bile duct injury with open wound into cavity

- Bile duct/gallbladder injury with open wound into cavity
- Contusion of bile duct

Information for Patients
Bile Duct Diseases
Your liver makes a digestive juice called bile. Your gallbladder stores it between meals. When you eat, your gallbladder pushes the bile into tubes called bile ducts. They carry the bile to your small intestine. The bile helps break down fat. It also helps the liver get rid of toxins and wastes.
Different diseases can block the bile ducts and cause a problem with the flow of bile:
- Gallstones, which can increase pressure in the gallbladder and cause a gallbladder attack. The pain usually lasts from one to several hours.
- Birth defects, such as biliary atresia. It is the most common reason for liver transplants in children in the United States.
- Inflammation, which can cause scarring. Over time, this can lead to liver failure.

Wounds and Injuries
Also called: Traumatic injuries
An injury is damage to your body. It is a general term that refers to harm caused by accidents, falls, hits, weapons, and more. In the U.S., millions of people injure themselves every year. These injuries range from minor to life-threatening. Injuries can happen at work or play, indoors or outdoors, driving a car, or walking across the street.
Wounds are injuries that break the skin or other body tissues. They include cuts, scrapes, scratches, and punctured skin. They often happen because of an accident, but surgery, sutures, and stitches also cause wounds. Minor wounds usually aren't serious, but it is important to clean them. Serious and infected wounds may require first aid followed by a visit to your doctor. You should also seek attention if the wound is deep, you cannot close it yourself, you cannot stop the bleeding or get the dirt out, or it does not heal.
