Know All About AV Fistulas

Arteriovenous Fistula Introduction

Delineated by a variety of factors, the formation of AV fistulas is a commonly observed medical occurrence. In this informative piece, we delve into the details of what these fistulas are, their underlying causes, common symptoms, methods of diagnosis, and potential courses of treatment. Specifically, an AV fistula is an abnormal connection between an artery and a vein, altering the normal flow of blood in the body. Typically, blood travels from an artery to the capillaries before reaching the veins, providing vital oxygen and nutrients along the way. However, in instances of an AV fistula, blood bypasses this crucial step, depriving tissues of adequate oxygen and nutrients.
