  1. Reporting of malformations in routine health registers.

    Article - En anglais

    The utility of three national registers-the malformation, birth, and hospital in-patient discharge registers-in identification of malformations among 60,255 children born in 1987 in Finland was compared.

    Information in the malformation register is collected by specific reporting of physicians; information on the malformed children in the other two registers in 1987 through 1990 was routinely collected and identified by ICD 9-codes (740-759, 7886A).

    From October 1990 on, the ICD-9 codes were omitted from the birth register and malformation data were asked only in a yes-no question.

    In 1987, the malformation register included 1,032, the birth register 3,084 and the inpatient register 2,003 malformed infants identified up to the age of 1 year.
