NC52.14/S61 Open bite of other parts of wrist or hand



Open bite of the wrist or hand is caused by a traumatic injury, such as a fall or a blow to the area. It can also be caused by chronic overuse or repetitive motion injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome.


Open bite of the wrist or hand can be diagnosed by a physical exam and imaging studies, such as X-rays or MRI scans.

Differential diagnosis

Open bite of the wrist or hand can be confused with other injuries, such as fractures, sprains, or tendonitis.


Treatment of open bite of the wrist or hand depends on the severity of the injury. Non-surgical treatments, such as splinting, physical therapy, and rest, may be recommended to reduce pain and swelling. Surgery may be necessary to repair the damaged tissue.


The prognosis for open bite of the wrist or hand is typically good if it is diagnosed and treated early. However, if the injury is left untreated, it can lead to long-term complications, such as limited range of motion or chronic pain.
