Background. Our understanding of the pathogenesis of arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) and arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs) has been limited by the lack of adequate animal models. In this study we evaluate the time course of angiographic, hemodynamic and histopathological changes in an arteriovenous fistula in rats as a potential model. Methods. An arteriovenous fistula was created by a side-to-end anastomosis of the common carotid artery (CCA) to the external jugular vein (EJV). The animals… CONTINUE READING
