try 747.61 Gastrointestinal vessel anomaly

This is what I usually use and is the code discussed in a conference I went to.

747.61 is a congenital code. Are you assuming it is congenital or was it stated in the documentation? If it isn't documented as congenital, I would lean towards either the 537.82 or 537.83. I would appreciate any feedback.
