Question: What is the ICD-10 Code for Acetabular Labral Tear?
Answer:The codes that begin with S73.1- are for sprains of the hip. If the two ligaments offered in that subcategory do not pertain to your patient (iliofemoral and ishiocapsular), then the most appropriate code would be S73.19- for other sprain of the hip. Your documentation would then need to specify why the other codes did not work by identifying the ligament that was sprained.
