2015 ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Code S85.172
Laceration of posterior tibial artery, left leg
S85.172 is not a billable ICD-10-CM diagnosis code and cannot be used to indicate a medical diagnosis as there are 3 codes below S85.172 that describe this diagnosis in greater detail.
On October 1, 2015 ICD-10-CM will replace ICD-9-CM in the United States, therefore, S85.172 - 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 S85.172. Other international ICD-10 versions may differ.
