ICD-10-CM Code K31.1
Adult hypertrophic pyloric stenosis
Billable CodeBillable codes are sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis.
Adult OnlyCode is only used for patients 15 years old or older.
K31.1 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of adult hypertrophic pyloric stenosis. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.
The ICD code K311 is used to code Pyloric stenosis
Pyloric stenosis or pylorostenosis is narrowing (stenosis) of the opening from the stomach to the first part of the small intestine known as the duodenum, due to enlargement (hypertrophy) of the muscle surrounding this opening (the pylorus, meaning "gate"), which spasms when the stomach empties. This condition causes severe projectile non-bilious vomiting. It most often occurs in the first few months of life, when it may thus be more specifically labeled as infantile hypertrophic pyloric stenosis. The thickened pylorus is felt classically as an olive-shaped mass in the middle upper part or right upper quadrant of the infant's abdomen. In pyloric stenosis, it is uncertain whether there is a true congenital anatomic narrowing or whether there is merely a functional hypertrophy of the pyloric sphincter muscle. This condition typically develops in male babies in the first 2 to 6 weeks of life.

Equivalent ICD-9 Code GENERAL EQUIVALENCE MAPPINGS (GEM)
This is the official exact match mapping between ICD9 and ICD10, as provided by the General Equivalency mapping crosswalk. This means that in all cases where the ICD9 code 537.0 was previously used, K31.1 is the appropriate modern ICD10 code.
