ICD10 ACETABULUM FRACTURE

The patient is diagnosed with right acetabulum fracture. Acute onset for about a week without trauma. Patient has a previous pelvic insufficiency secondary to radiation for treatment of cancer. The radiology states patient has osteopenic changes noted throughout.
How should I code this? I am looking at M84.454A chronic fracture or M84.650A in other disease with M85.88. I aappreciate any info.

    Vickie,

    I think I would use M84.650A & M85.88 but also a late effect code for the radiation treatment and personal history of cancer. I take it the cancer was in the pelvis area?

    No. It is colon cancer. I should have stated what kind of cancer. I appreciate the info.
