Valid for Submission
K56.1 is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of intussusception. The code K56.1 is valid during the fiscal year 2022 from October 01, 2021 through September 30, 2022 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.
The ICD-10-CM code K56.1 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like cecocolic intussusception, chronic intussusception, complete rectal prolapse, compound intussusception, gastroduodenal disorder , gastroduodenal intussusception, etc.
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 K56.1:
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.
- Intussusception or invagination of bowel
- Intussusception or invagination of colon
- Intussusception or invagination of intestine
- Intussusception or invagination of rectum
Type 2 ExcludesType 2 Excludes
A type 2 excludes note represents "Not included here". An excludes2 note indicates that the condition excluded is not part of the condition represented by the code, but a patient may have both conditions at the same time. When an Excludes2 note appears under a code, it is acceptable to use both the code and the excluded code together, when appropriate.

- INTUSSUSCEPTION-. a form of intestinal obstruction caused by the prolapse of a part of the intestine into the adjoining intestinal lumen. there are four types: colic involving segments of the large intestine; enteric involving only the small intestine; ileocecal in which the ileocecal valve prolapses into the cecum drawing the ileum along with it; and ileocolic in which the ileum prolapses through the ileocecal valve into the colon.

Information for Patients
An intestinal obstruction occurs when food or stool cannot move through the intestines. The obstruction can be complete or partial. There are many causes. The most common are adhesions, hernias, cancers, and certain medicines.
