2021 ICD-10-CM Codes for Injury of nerves and spinal cord at thorax level (S24)

Instructional Notations

Code Also Code Also
A "code also" note instructs that two codes may be required to fully describe a condition, but this note does not provide sequencing direction.

  • any associated:
  • fracture of thoracic vertebra S22.0
  • open wound of thorax S21
  • transient paralysis R29.5

Type 2 Excludes Type 2 Excludes
A type 2 excludes note represents "Not included here". An excludes2 note indicates that the condition excluded is not part of the condition represented by the code, but a patient may have both conditions at the same time. When an Excludes2 note appears under a code, it is acceptable to use both the code and the excluded code together, when appropriate.

  • injury of brachial plexus S14.3

7th Character Note 7th Character Note
Certain ICD-10-CM categories have applicable 7th characters. The applicable 7th character is required for all codes within the category, or as the notes in the Tabular List instruct. The 7th character must always be the 7th character in the data field. If a code that requires a 7th character is not 6 characters, a placeholder X must be used to fill in the empty characters.

  • The appropriate 7th character is to be added to each code from category S24

7th Character 7th Character
Indicates that a seventh character is to be assigned to codes in a subcategory.

  • A - initial encounter
  • D - subsequent encounter
  • S - sequela

  • Code to highest level of thoracic spinal cord injury
  • Injuries to the spinal cord S24.0 S24.1
