DX for impending fracture

Sally Posted Thu 22nd of October, 2015 16:53:45 PM

Procedure was a prophylactic intramedullary nailing right femur - CPT 27187.

The dx is metastic disease to bone, likely lung cancer in nature, metastased in subtrochanteric are and femoral neck consistent with possible impending fracture. What would the diagnosis codes be?

Use ICD-9 code 198.5 and 733.15. In ICD-10-CM, use code C79.51 and M84.551A.
