Patients who underwent nonoperative and operative treatment of Achilles tendon ruptures by either primary repair or primary repair with graft (International Classification of Diseases 9 [ICD-9] diagnosis code 727.67, Current Procedural Terminology [CPT] codes 27650 and 27652) for the years 2005 to 2011 were identified using the PearlDiver Medicare Database Delayed repair of a ruptured Achilles tendon with FHL tendon transfer. This was the first time I had used the PARS system and I hope this video provides you. The Achilles tendon doesn't rupture cleanly; its fibers shred like frayed rope.

As an outpatient, the patient went on to have an MRI which confirmed the Achilles tendon was completely severed. The patient went on to have an operative repair of the tendon one week later, with a good prognosis for a normal functional outcome The code S86.012S is valid during the fiscal year 2021 from October 01, 2020 through September 30, 2021 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.

Tendon repair attempts to secure the Achilles tendon to the bone using metal or plastic anchors. Tendon transfer is done when more than half the Achilles tendon is damaged and the remaining tendon is at risk of rupture. During this procedure a tendon from the big toe is removed and transferred to the back of the heel to reinforce the damaged. Mary McMahon Pain medications may be prescribed to a patient after a tendon debridement. Tendon debridement is a surgery to remove inflamed tissue from around a tendon to allow it to heal.
