Wounds and healing

Wounds (including fractures) may result from surgery, disease or trauma / assault.

Only code to Injuries and Accidents if the wounds were a result of accident or injury. Otherwise apply the relevant Health Category if the wound tissue type is specified or Generic if the abstract doesn't specify a tissue type.

Basic cellular mechanisms of wound healing are normal function i.e.1 Underpinning. However investigation of the cause, diagnosis, treatment and management of wound healing should be assigned to the appropriate code.
