Diagnostic Related Groups

The Diagnostic Related Groups (DRGs) are a patient classification scheme which provides a means of relating the type of patients a hospital treats. The DRGs divides all possible principal diagnoses into mutually exclusive principal diagnosis areas referred to as Major Diagnostic Categories (MDC). The diagnosis code D37.1 is grouped in the following groups for version MS-DRG V36.0 applicable from 10/01/2018 through 09/30/2019.

  • 374 - DIGESTIVE MALIGNANCY WITH MCC
  • 375 - DIGESTIVE MALIGNANCY WITH CC
  • 376 - DIGESTIVE MALIGNANCY WITHOUT CC/MCC

Convert D37.1 to ICD-9

The following crosswalk between ICD-10 to ICD-9 is based based on the General Equivalence Mappings (GEMS) information:

  • 235.2 - Unc behav neo intestine (Approximate Flag)

Synonyms

The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms:

  • Carcinoid tumor of stomach
  • Neoplasm of fundus of stomach
  • Neoplasm of greater curvature of stomach
  • Neoplasm of lesser curvature of stomach
  • Neoplasm of pyloric antrum
  • Neoplasm of pylorus
  • Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of body of stomach
  • Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of cardia of stomach
  • Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of fundus of stomach
  • Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of greater curvature of stomach
  • Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of lesser curvature of stomach
  • Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of pyloric antrum
  • Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of pylorus
  • Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of stomach
  • Pyloric mass

Table of Neoplasms

The code D37.1 is included in the table of neoplasms by anatomical site. For each site there are six possible code numbers according to whether the neoplasm in question is malignant, benign, in situ, of uncertain behavior, or of unspecified nature. The description of the neoplasm will often indicate which of the six columns is appropriate.

Where such descriptors are not present, the remainder of the Index should be consulted where guidance is given to the appropriate column for each morphological (histological) variety listed. However, the guidance in the Index can be overridden if one of the descriptors mentioned above is present.

The Tabular must be reviewed for the complete diagnosis code.

Stomach Disorders

Also called: Gastric disorders

Your stomach is an organ between your esophagus and small intestine. It is where digestion of protein begins. The stomach has three tasks. It stores swallowed food. It mixes the food with stomach acids. Then it sends the mixture on to the small intestine.

Most people have a problem with their stomach at one time or another. Indigestion and heartburn are common problems. You can relieve some stomach problems with over-the-counter medicines and lifestyle changes, such as avoiding fatty foods or eating more slowly. Other problems like peptic ulcers or GERD require medical attention.

You should see a doctor if you have any of the following:

  • Blood when you have a bowel movement
  • Severe abdominal pain
  • Heartburn not relieved by antacids
  • Unintended weight loss
  • Ongoing vomiting or diarrhea

ICD-10 Footnotes

General Equivalence Map Definitions
The ICD-10 and ICD-9 GEMs are used to facilitate linking between the diagnosis codes in ICD-9-CM and the new ICD-10-CM code set. The GEMs are the raw material from which providers, health information vendors and payers can derive specific applied mappings to meet their needs.

  • Approximate Flag - The approximate flag is on, indicating that the relationship between the code in the source system and the code in the target system is an approximate equivalent.
  • No Map Flag - The no map flag indicates that a code in the source system is not linked to any code in the target system.
  • Combination Flag - The combination flag indicates that more than one code in the target system is required to satisfy the full equivalent meaning of a code in the source system.
