I'M SEARCHING FOR THE ICD-10 RELATED TO A TRAUMATIC, DISPLACED, TRANSVERSE LT PERIPROSTHETIC FEMUR FRACTURE. I'VE SELECTED T84.041A. DO I ALSO NEED TO ADD THE TRAUMATIC FRACUTRE CODE S72.322?

The code T84.041A seems to be most appropriate for the above mentioned scenario.
As it is traumatic fracture both conditions are covered under the code given.
Hope this helps!
