    747.81 is the code for Anomalies of the cerebrovascular system, including AV malformation of the brain. Whenever you see an abnormality/ malformation from birth, you are more than likely going to be looking at "Anomaly" in your Index and a code from the Congenital Anomalies section of your book.
