(AV) Fistula. After a connection is made, the blood flows from the artery into the veins, resulting in enlarged veins. These enlarged veins can deliver the amount of blood flow that is necessary for successful hemodialysis treatment.

Tag Line

Arteriovenous (AV) Fistula for hemodialysis is a surgical connection which is made between a vein and an artery, typically in your hand as preparation for dialysis.


Once the surgeon is sure your blood vessels can support a fistula and you are physically fit for AV Fistula creation, an appointment will be scheduled.


    Once AV Fistula is created, it may take weeks or months for the fistula to mature to a point where it can be used for hemodialysis treatment.
