OBJECTIVES We sought to determine the incidence of arteriovenous fistulas (AVF), identify risk factors for AVF, and follow up the clinical outcome of femoral AVF. BACKGROUND Arteriovenous fistulas are a potential harmful complication of cardiac catheterization. Incidence and clinical outcome of iatrogenic AVF are unknown so far, although important for risk stratification and treatment. METHODS A total of 10,271 consecutive patients undergoing cardiac catheterization were followed up… CONTINUE READING
