Valid for Submission
I61.1 is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of nontraumatic intracerebral hemorrhage in hemisphere, cortical. The code I61.1 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 I61.1 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like cortical hemorrhage, nontraumatic intraparenchymal cerebral hemorrhage, spontaneous hemorrhage of cerebral hemisphere or spontaneous hemorrhage of cortical intracerebral hemisphere.
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 I61.1:
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.
- Cerebral lobe hemorrhage (nontraumatic)
- Superficial intracerebral hemorrhage (nontraumatic)
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 I61.1 are found in the index:
- - Hemorrhage, hemorrhagic (concealed) - R58
The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Cortical hemorrhage
- Nontraumatic intraparenchymal cerebral hemorrhage
- Spontaneous hemorrhage of cerebral hemisphere
- Spontaneous hemorrhage of cortical intracerebral hemisphere
Convert I61.1 to ICD-9 Code
The General Equivalency Mapping (GEM) crosswalk indicates an approximate mapping between the ICD-10 code I61.1 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.
