Question: Patient Population

Should patients with final diagnosis "PHLEBITIS INTRCRAN SINUS (325" be considered in a stroke population?)

Answer:

The ICD-9-CM Principal Diagnosis Code tables (i.e., Appendix A, Table 8.1 and Table 8.2)that are used for the stroke core measures are also used to identify the initial patient population for CSTK. Code 325 PHLEBITIS INTRCRAN SINUS is not included on Table 8.1.
