What is an ICD?

There is a regulatory document used in the medical community that is periodically reviewed by the World Health Organization. It includes a list of all the diseases and pathologies that occur in humans. It is called the International Classification of Diseases (ICD). Its main goal is to provide assistance in the study of the patient's condition and to create the optimal conditions for it by systematically recording the available data. The information is collected from all over the world and is coded under certain names. It can be completed and retrieved at any time for further study.

Great! The ICD table contains codes and groups marked with codes. A title can contain different forms and manifestations of the same disease. The entry is organized in alphabetical order for convenience.

  • acute, occurs in 50% of patients not older than 30-35 years. It is mainly associated with bacterial infections.
  • chronic. It does not manifest for a long time and can develop in the background of an infectious process.

Due to the appearance, it happens:

  • bacterium that appears inside the organ.
  • non-bacterial, in which pathological changes take place mainly in chronic form.
  • viral, in which the entire genital area is affected.

From the nature of the structural changes, the following are distinguished:

  • fibrous form. Glandular tissue growth occurs quite rapidly and requires radical treatment. Clinically similar to ICD prostate adenoma of which 40, 0.
  • computing. It occurs when stones form in the tissues of the glandular organ. It is considered a harbinger of cancer.
  • stationary form. Appears with physical inactivity, prolonged abstinence from sex.

ICD codes for acute and chronic prostatitis

Chronic prostatitis ICD code 41. 1 with any adverse factors may worsen. Acute inflammation of ICD 41. 0 leads to glandular tissue swelling, which is fraught with acute urinary retention.

  • development of male infertility.
  • narrowing and scarring of the urethral canal.
  • recurrent cystitis
  • pyelonephritis and other diseases affecting the kidneys.
  • depletion of glandular tissues, requiring immediate medical intervention.
  • sepsis, which most often develops in people with weakened immunity.

In some cases, a single rectal examination and familiarization with the patient's complaints for diagnosis is sufficient. However, inflammation is mainly diagnosed using laboratory and instrumental testing methods.

The patient reports:

  • Blood and urine tests to identify infections and inflammation.
  • analysis of prostate secretions.
  • ultrasound examination of the prostate, kidneys, bladder.
  • urethrocytoscopy
  • Magnetic resonance imaging of the pelvic organs.
  • PSA blood tests.
  • biopsy?
  • x-ray.

One of the most effective diagnostic methods is the rectal digital examination of the prostate. Although in the acute form, the organ is very sensitive and the procedure can cause severe pain to the patient.
