Arteriovenous Fistula Summary

Description: An abnormal direct communication between an artery and a vein without passing through the CAPILLARIES. An A-V fistula usually leads to the formation of a dilated sac-like connection, arteriovenous aneurysm. The locations and size of the shunts determine the degree of effects on the cardiovascular functions such as BLOOD PRESSURE and HEART RATE.

Also Known As: Arteriovenous Fistulas; Fistula, Arteriovenous; Fistulas, Arteriovenous; Aneurysm, Arteriovenous; Arteriovenous Aneurysm
