William Hunter is credited with the earliest description of an arteriovenous fistula (AVF) when he noticed an abnormal connection between an artery and a vein in two patients who underwent a phlebotomy. After the 19 th century with the advent of high-speed projectiles, the incidence of AVF increased. With a better understanding of the underlying pathophysiology, the modalities of diagnosis and treatment have come a long way and even now continue to change. We present below three patients who presented with AVF and were treated with surgery.
