Isi artikelBackground: Adjustment for comorbidity is an important component of any clinical outcome study using administrative data. The Elixhauser Index is a relatively newer comorbidity index for use with administrative data and has not been used to assess prognosis in patients with stroke. Similarly, an International Classification of Diseases (ICD)-10 coding algorithm has been rarely reported for Elixhauser Index. Objective: To evaluate whether the Elixhauser Index provides a useful comorbidity adjustment for predicting in-hospital case-fatality in stroke outcome studies and to compare the degree of consistency using ICD-9-CM and ICD-10 coding algorithms. Methods: Patients who had stroke from 1998 to 2000 (cohort A in the ICD-9-CM data) and 2003 to 2005 (cohort B in the ICD-10 data) in a large Canadian city were identified from the Hospital Discharge database. The performance of two coding algorithms for predicting the in-hospital case-fatality was assessed using multivariable logistic regression models. The C-statistic was used to compare the performance of each coding algorithm in predicting in-hospital case-fatality. Results: Among 2,465 patients with stroke in the ICD-9-CM data (cohort A) and 2,987 patients with stroke in the ICD-10 data (cohort B), there was no difference in model performance using ICD-9-CM (C-statistic was 0.717) as compared with ICD-10 coding algorithms (C-statistic was 0.721; p = 0.83). Elixhauser comorbidity adjustment provided a better prediction of in-hospital case-fatality compared to reduced models including only age and gender (p < 0.0001) for both coding models. Conclusion: The Elixhauser Index provides similar comorbidity adjusted risk estimates using both ICD-9-CM and ICD-10, and may be useful for predicting risk-adjusted in-hospital case-fatality in stroke outcome studies.
