Hospital admitting diagnosis was "distal femur fracture secondary to a fall." admitted to facility "s/p distal femur replacement."
Section I: do I code "other fracture"? or is it considered resolved since she underwent a replacement?
Thanks in advance!

You may code other fracture but enter an aftercare code in I8000, something like:
S72.8X1D, S72.8X2D, S72.8X92D - D indicating it is a subsequent encounter after surgery.
