    If you mean an A/V fistula, its arterio-venous fistula, used for hemodialysis. Kind of a surgical bridge between the artery and vein. As far as the post op care plan, think any surgery...risks for infection & dvt, pain, body image disturbance, knowledge defecit, etc. Make sure you include pt education on discharge info as well
    Good luck!
    I <3 care plans!! (but I'm glad I'm done with school!;0)
