David E Clark, Adam W Black, David H Skavdahl, Lee D Hallagan
BACKGROUND: The article introduces Programs for Injury Categorization, using the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) and R statistical software (ICDPIC-R). Starting with ICD-8, methods have been described to map injury diagnosis codes to severity scores, especially the Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) and Injury Severity Score (ISS). ICDPIC was originally developed for this purpose using Stata, and ICDPIC-R is an open-access update that accepts both ICD-9 and ICD-10 codes. METHODS: Data were obtained from the National Trauma Data Bank (NTDB), Admission Year 2015...

BACKGROUND: The Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) is an internationally accepted coding system created by the Association for the Advancement of Automotive Medicine, utilized to code traumatic injuries as a function of severity, the latter often defined as mortality risk. Periodic reassessment of that risk is prudent, in light of advances in health care and relationship of nonanatomic factors to death. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to reevaluate the risk of death associated with spine fractures with and without neurologic deficit, age factors associated with it, and the impact of hospital coding on the accuracy of these efforts...

Although the Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) is the most widely used severity scoring system for traumatic injuries, hospitals are required to document and bill based on the International Classification of Diseases (ICD). An expert panel recently developed a map between ICD-9-CM and ICD-10-CM to AIS 2005 Update 2008. This study aimed to validate the recently developed map using a large trauma registry. The map demonstrated moderate to substantial agreement for maximum AIS (MAIS) scores per body region based on expert chart review versus map-derived values (range: 44%-86%)...

Cocaine is the third most common substance of abuse after cannabis and alcohol. The use of cocaine as an illicit substance is implicated as a causative factor for multisystem derangements ranging from an acute crisis to chronic complications. Vasospasm is the proposed mechanism behind adverse events resulting from cocaine abuse, acute ischemic strokes (AIS) being one of the few. Our study looked into in-hospital outcomes owing to cocaine use in the large population based study of AIS patients. Using the national inpatient sample (NIS) database from 2014 of United States of America, we identified AIS patients with cocaine use using International Classification of Disease, Ninth Revision (ICD-9) codes...

BACKGROUND: Congenital scoliosis (CS) is associated with more rigid, complex deformities relative to adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) which theoretically increases surgical complications. Despite extensive literature studying AIS patients, few studies have been performed on CS patients. The purpose of this study was to evaluate complications associated with spinal fusions for CS and AIS. METHODS: A retrospective review of the Kid's Inpatient Database (KID) years 2000 to 2009 was performed...

INTRODUCTION: Bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) can increase the likelihood of solid arthrodesis in spinal surgery. This would imply fewer reoperations for pseudarthrosis, but small cohort sizes are inadequate to monitor these events. We sought to examine adolescent idiopathic (AIS) and non-idiopathic scoliosis (NIS) for reoperation events with and without the use of BMP using a large statewide database. METHODS: The 2008-2011 New York State Inpatient Database was queried using International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-9-CM) codes...

OBJECTIVE: This article describes how maps were developed from the clinical modifications of the 9th and 10th revisions of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) to the Abbreviated Injury Scale 2005 Update 2008 (AIS08). The development of the mapping methodology is described, with discussion of the major assumptions used in the process to map ICD codes to AIS severities. There were many intricacies to developing the maps, because the 2 coding systems, ICD and AIS, were developed for different purposes and contain unique classification structures to meet these purposes...

INTRODUCTION: We aim to analyze the impact of annual hospital volume on outcomes of endovascular mechanical thrombectomy (EMT) for acute ischemic stroke (AIS). In the recent past, increasing number of hospitals are acquiring capabilities for EMT procedure for the treatment of AIS, including some low-volume centers. There are few data on outcomes comparing these hospitals with high-volume centers. METHODS: We queried the National Inpatient Sample from 2008 to 2011 using International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-9 CM) diagnosis codes 433 to 437...

INTRODUCTION: Bicycling has become increasingly popular in Iceland. Official registration of bicycle accidents is based on police reports. As minor accidents are often not reported to the police, these accidents may be underreported in police records. The aim of this study was to examine the epidemiology of bicycle related accidents in patients seeking medical assistance at the Emergency Department (ED) at Landspitali-University Hospital, Reykjavik (LUH), Iceland. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This retrospective cohort study was conducted at the ED at LUH, Iceland from January 2005 to December 2010...

BACKGROUND: Most of the current scores and outcome prediction calculations in traumatology are based on the Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS). However, this is not routinely used for documentation and coding of injuries in many countries, including Germany. Instead of the AIS, the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) is used. While the ICD functions as the basis for automated calculating of the diagnosis-related groups (DRG), no possibility of simple conversion of the 10th version of the ICD into AIS is available so far...

OBJECTIVE: There has been a longstanding desire for a map to convert International Classification of Diseases (ICD) injury codes to Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) codes to reflect the severity of those diagnoses. The Association for the Advancement of Automotive Medicine (AAAM) was tasked by European Union representatives to create a categorical map classifying diagnoses codes as serious injury (Abbreviated Injury Scale [AIS] 3+), minor/moderate injury (AIS 1/2), or indeterminate. This study's objective was to map injury-related ICD-9-CM (clinical modification) and ICD-10-CM codes to these severity categories...
