In brief: I'm not a coding

Expert but i think you'd use it by type and by anatomic location code for a laceration only not the state of healing.
This is for diagnosis not the treatment used.

In brief: V58.43

This codes for the aftercare following injury, but is the closest thing to a icd9 for healed wound that we have.
