In this procedure, the provider surgically opens the autogenous or nonautogenous arteriovenous fistula and removes the clot from the connection between the artery and the vein. He does not revise the fistula. An arteriovenous fistula is a connection between an artery and vein that a provider often locates in the upper arm or forearm and uses for dialysis purposes.
