  1. Bimalleolar and trimalleolar fractures are complex fractures of the ankle. The ankle actually consists of two malleoli. These are formed by the distal end of the fibula in the ankle and the distal aspect of the tibia in the ankle. The tibia has a posterior portion that can fracture along with a more anterior portion of the ankle
  2. Open Reduction and Internal Fixation of the Ankle Sanjit R. Konda Kenneth A.

  4. There are two schools of thought for billing closed treatment without manipulation of hand/foot fractures. The first is to bill the fracture care and any imaging and supplies used for treatment during the initial visit. This locks the provider into 90 global care, so the follow-up visits are not reportable
  5. Coding Guideline B3.15: Reposition for Fracture Treatment Reduction of a displaced fracture is coded to the root operation Reposition and the application of a cast or splint in conjunction with the Reposition procedure is not coded separately. Treatment of a non-displaced fracture is coded to the procedure performed. Examples
  6. Ankle fractures are very common injuries to the ankle which generally occur due to a twisting mechanism. Diagnosis is made with orthogonal radiographs of the ankle. Treatment can be nonoperative or operative depending on fracture displacement, ankle stability, syndesmosis injury, and patient activity demands. 1

Most ankle dislocations are fracture-dislocations. Reduction uses traction-countertraction to disengage the talus from the distal tibia, followed by repositioning of the talar dome into the joint mortice and splinting to stabilize the reduction until definitive orthopedic treatment.

If you're looking for ankle fractures in ICD-10-PCS, you may need to look a little deeper. Let's take a look at coding an ankle fracture such as a trimalleolar fracture. PCS coding can be confusing as it is nothing like CPT coding; with CPT we can simply code an ankle. Commonly a low-energy fracture of either the lateral or medial malleolus, or both, and can include a fracture of the posterior malleolus. May be associated with a dislocation of the ankle joint. Can be associated with a disruption of the tibiofibular syndesmosis. Displaced fractures are commonly treated with an open reduction and internal fixation Open reduction internal fixation (ORIF) is a surgical approach that's used for repairing certain types of bone fractures. An open reduction is an invasive surgical bone realignment, as opposed to a closed reduction that's done without surgery or an incision. Internal fixation is the surgical insertion of hardware to stabilize and hold the bone. ORIF is performed by an orthopedic surgeon.. The surgery is used to fix fractures in the arms and legs, including bones in the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee, and ankle

Dislocation of the ankle usually occurs with fractures of the malleoli or of the posterior aspect of the tibia because the ankle's ligamentous structures are, in most cases, stronger than the osseous architecture.
