French term or phrase: FAV radio-radiale droite
Hi,

The patient had a right AVF (FAV radio-radiale droite) but am having problems with the type of AVF.

My French research found that "radio-radiale" is the anastomosis of the radial artery to the radial vein but I can't seem to find any such AVF in English.

Could it be a "radio-cephalic" AVF?

Thanks

radiocephalic AVF
Explanation:
Radiocephalic wrist fistula (Brescia-Cimino fistula): This is the most common fistula and is created at the wrist (primary radiocephalic fistula). A small vein (cephalic vein) and a small artery (radial artery) are joined together using very fine stitches (see below). This fistula was first devised in the mid 1960s and is still the most common fistula in use for haemodialysis.
