(2022) How To Code Tibial Plateau Fracture ICD 10 – List With Codes & Guidelines

This article will outline the causes, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, recovery and list of ICD 10 CM codes for Tibial Plateau Fracture.

Tibial Plateau Fracture ICD 10 Causes

A Tibial Plateau Fracture ICD 10 is evident in road accidents and sports accidents at high speeds such as skiing, horseback riding and certain water sports.

The tibia plateau fracture is caused by a strong force on the lower leg when it is in the varus-valgus position due to simultaneous vertical loading and bending of the knee.

The nature of the injury and soft tissue trauma such as torn ligaments need to be carefully weighed up and treated.

Tibial Plateau Fracture ICD 10 Symptoms

Patients with a Tibial Plateau Fracture ICD 10 may experience pain and discomfort in the upper part of the shin after the impact, which is a sign of a shin platelet fracture.

Other symptoms can include difficulty carrying the weight on the leg, bruising, swelling and pallor of the leg due to decreased blood circulation, joint pain, weight strain on the bone and broken skin.

Patients with a shin platelet fracture are at risk for a serious condition known as compartment syndrome.

This condition occurs when the pressure in the leg becomes too high and the blood oxygen circulates too slowly. Muscles can die if left untreated. Signs of compartment syndrome are severe pain, stretching of the big toe, loss of feeling in the foot, and pain disproportionate to the injury itself.

Tibial Plateau Fracture ICD 10 Diagnosis

A doctor can make a correct diagnosis of a Tibial Plateau Fracture ICD 10 by performing imaging tests such as X-rays, MRI and CT.

A physical examination is crucial to assess the injury. Important nerves and blood vessels running through the bone can be injured if the bone is broken. The diagnosis of a blood vessel injury may require urgent surgery.

X-rays can be used to assess the location and severity of the broken bone. This helps the doctor and patient to make informed decisions about treatment. But this is only a surgical emergency.

For small fractures, an MRI is arranged to diagnose stress fractures that cannot be seen on a normal X-ray. Computed tomography (CT) is used to plan treatment and surgery. 2 or more x-rays are taken to show the pattern of the injury.

Tibial Plateau Fracture ICD 10 Treatment

In general, Tibial Plateau Fracture ICD 10 are divided into two main groups: displaced and non-displaced fractures. Surgically, there are 6 different classifications of tibial plateau fractures depending on the severity and type of injury.

The most common non-surgical treatment for short legs is a non-weight-bearing cast, joint or knee brace with physical therapy and rest. If the fracture does not shift, surgery may not be necessary. However, if the fracture shifts, some may need surgery.

Tibial Plateau Fracture ICD 10 Recovery

In a Tibial Plateau Fracture ICD 10, the tibia is preserved without breaking or tearing, but fragments of the plateau are severed. This fracture has a better future result than displaced fractures, which heal in 3-4 months without surgery.

During this time, the patient is obliged not to carry any weight or wear a knee brace on the injured knee.

Physical therapy and rehabilitation exercises are required to maintain leg strength during the recovery phase. Displaced fractures are when a bone is broken into two or more fragments. In some cases, surgery is required to reattach the broken bone in order to promote proper healing of the bone tissue.

This is achieved by placing a screw plate between the bone fragments to keep them safe.

Recovery after surgery can take several months and requires that the patient does not carry any weight for a long period of time. In the case of a soft tissue injury, the recovery process can take even longer.
