Documentation of Pediatric Surgery Experiences of a Tertiary Referral Hospital: International Classification of Diseases Spectrum for Teaching, Planning, and Scaling Up Services

July 8, 2021 Disease and Health 0

Introduction: Pediatric surgery provides the opportunity to intervene positively in a variety of disorders that can have a long-term impact. It becomes important to systematically analyze the features of & amp; facilities for Paediatric surgery at a referral hospital. The purpose of this study was to assess the importance of pediatric surgery in a variety of situations. Materials and Methods: The study included all children aged 0–10 years who were operated on in a tertiary care hospital. To group the cases, the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems 10th Revision (International Classification of Diseases [ICD]-10)-WHO Version (2016) was used, which included terminology from the ICD-11 Beta Draft. The findings revealed that “developmental anomalies” accounted for 79.1 percent of the cases, while “acquired conditions requiring surgical intervention” accounted for 20.9 percent. The most common congenital malformations were those of the genital organs (17%), followed by those of the digestive (13%) and nervous systems (13%), urinary system (12%), circulatory system (8%), and cleft lip and palate (8%). (7 percent ). Cleft lip and palate repair, as well as genital, digestive, nervous, urinary, and musculoskeletal system defects, should all be included in the congenital anomaly surgery package. Only “congenital malformations of the circulatory system” necessitate referral to a superspecialty center.

Conclusion: The majority of the workload (79.1%) is due to “developmental abnormalities,” implying a need for expertise in repairing these as well as restoring anatomy for optimal growth and physiological function. The essential surgery package for congenital anomalies at second and third-level hospitals should include expertise for all system anomalies. The inclusion of indirect inguinal hernia in Chapter 20 of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11) will help to correct international comparisons and guide planning.
