Valid for Submission
I60.7 is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of nontraumatic subarachnoid hemorrhage from unspecified intracranial artery. The code I60.7 is valid during the fiscal year 2021 from October 01, 2020 through September 30, 2021 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.
The ICD-10-CM code I60.7 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like berry aneurysm, hemorrhage due to ruptured congenital cerebral aneurysm, ruptured aneurysm of intracranial artery, ruptured berry aneurysm, ruptured cerebral aneurysm , spontaneous hemorrhage of subarachnoid space from intracranial artery, etc.
Unspecified diagnosis codes like I60.7 are acceptable when clinical information is unknown or not available about a particular condition. Although a more specific code is preferable, unspecified codes should be used when such codes most accurately reflect what is known about a patient's condition. Specific diagnosis codes should not be used if not supported by the patient's medical record.
Tabular List of Diseases and Injuries
The Tabular List of Diseases and Injuries is a list of ICD-10 codes, organized "head to toe" into chapters and sections with coding notes and guidance for inclusions, exclusions, descriptions and more. The following references are applicable to the code I60.7:
Inclusion TermsInclusion Terms
These terms are the conditions for which that code is to be used. The terms may be synonyms of the code title, or, in the case of "other specified" codes, the terms are a list of the various conditions assigned to that code. The inclusion terms are not necessarily exhaustive. Additional terms found only in the Alphabetic Index may also be assigned to a code.
- Ruptured (congenital) berry aneurysm
- Ruptured (congenital) cerebral aneurysm
- Subarachnoid hemorrhage (nontraumatic) from cerebral artery NOS
- Subarachnoid hemorrhage (nontraumatic) from communicating artery NOS
Type 1 ExcludesType 1 Excludes
A type 1 excludes note is a pure excludes note. It means "NOT CODED HERE!" An Excludes1 note indicates that the code excluded should never be used at the same time as the code above the Excludes1 note. An Excludes1 is used when two conditions cannot occur together, such as a congenital form versus an acquired form of the same condition.
- berry aneurysm, nonruptured I67.1
Index to Diseases and Injuries
The Index to Diseases and Injuries is an alphabetical listing of medical terms, with each term mapped to one or more ICD-10 code(s). The following references for the code I60.7 are found in the index:
- - Aneurysm (anastomotic) (artery) (cirsoid) (diffuse) (false) (fusiform) (multiple) (saccular) - I72.9
- - berry (congenital) (nonruptured) - I67.1
- - ruptured - I60.7
- - brain - I67.1
- - congenital (peripheral) - Q27.8
- - berry (congenital) (nonruptured) - I67.1
The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Berry aneurysm
- Hemorrhage due to ruptured congenital cerebral aneurysm
- Ruptured aneurysm of intracranial artery
- Ruptured berry aneurysm
- Ruptured cerebral aneurysm
- Spontaneous hemorrhage of subarachnoid space from intracranial artery
- Subarachnoid hemorrhage due to ruptured aneurysm
- Subarachnoid hemorrhage from multiple aneurysms
Convert I60.7 to ICD-9 Code
The General Equivalency Mapping (GEM) crosswalk indicates an approximate mapping between the ICD-10 code I60.7 its ICD-9 equivalent. The approximate mapping means there is not an exact match between the ICD-10 code and the ICD-9 code and the mapped code is not a precise representation of the original code.
Information for Patients
Also called: Intracerebral Hemorrhage, Subarachnoid Hemorrhage
A stroke is a medical emergency. There are two types - ischemic and hemorrhagic. Hemorrhagic stroke is the less common type. It happens when a blood vessel breaks and bleeds into the brain. Within minutes, brain cells begin to die. Causes include a bleeding aneurysm, an arteriovenous malformation (AVM), or an artery wall that breaks open.
Symptoms of stroke are
- Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm or leg (especially on one side of the body)
- Sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding speech
- Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes
- Sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination
- Sudden severe headache with no known cause
It is important to treat strokes as quickly as possible. With a hemorrhagic stroke, the first steps are to find the cause of bleeding in the brain and then control it. Surgery may be needed. Post-stroke rehabilitation can help people overcome disabilities caused by stroke damage.
