Arteriovenous Fistula

Who Performs the Procedure and Where Is It Performed?

The surgery to create an arteriovenous fistula for vascular access in hemodialysis is performed by a general surgeon or vascular surgeon in a hospital or one-day surgery center. It requires only local anesthesia and can be performed as an outpatient procedure.

Questions to Ask the Doctor

  • Why are you recommending an AV fistula instead of another kind of access?
  • How will an AV fistula make dialysis easier or better for me?
  • How often do you perform this procedure?
  • What will the fistula look like? Feel like?
  • Should I treat my fistula arm in any special way?
  • Are there activities I should avoid?
  • How long will the AV fistula last?
