I67.11: Cerebral arteriovenous fistula, acquired
You have a connection between two blood vessels in your brain.
There are blood vessels that carry the blood from the heart to the body. Other blood vessels carry the blood back to the heart. In your case, these two types of blood vessel in the brain are connected to each other in one place.
This blood vessel may rupture more quickly than a healthy blood vessel. However, you may have no symptoms at all.
On medical documents, the ICD code is often appended by letters that indicate the diagnostic certainty or the affected side of the body.
- G: Confirmed diagnosis
- V: Tentative diagnosis
- Z: Condition after
- A: Excluded diagnosis
- L: Left
- R: Right
- B: Both sides
