2015 ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Code S22.050
Wedge compression fracture of T5-T6 vertebra
S22.050 is not a billable ICD-10-CM diagnosis code and cannot be used to indicate a medical diagnosis as there are 6 codes below S22.050 that describe this diagnosis in greater detail.
On October 1, 2015 ICD-10-CM will replace ICD-9-CM in the United States, therefore, S22.050 - and all other ICD-10-CM codes - should only be used for training or planning purposes until then.
This is the American ICD-10-CM version of S22.050. Other international ICD-10 versions may differ.
The following ICD-10-CM Index entries contain back-references to ICD-10-CM S22.050:
