AbstractOBJECTIVES: To assess trends in intussusception and to validate the coding in Hong Kong's computerised discharge information system. DESIGN: Case notes were reviewed for all children under the age of 5 years who had a discharge diagnosis indicating intussusception or a procedure indicating reduction of intussusception during the 6-year period 1 July 1997 through 30 June 2003. RESULTS: Intussusception rates for infants under 1 year of age (108/100,000) and under 5 years of age (38/100,000) were slightly higher than previous estimates (78-100/100,000 and 27-32/100,000, respectively) that used passive discharge data alone. CONCLUSIONS: Hong Kong's passive computer data systems could be used to monitor rates of intussusception after the introduction of new rotavirus vaccines, provided readmissions, inter-hospital transfers, and hospital follow-ups for the same episode are taken into account.
