The Full form of A-V is ArterioVenous, or A-V stands for ArterioVenous, or the full name of given abbreviation is ArterioVenous.
ArterioVenous is known as A-V, An abnormality in communication between an artery and a vein. In an arteriovenous malformation (AVM), blood passes quickly from the artery to vein, disrupting the normal blood flow and depriving the surrounding tissues of oxygen.
The arteriovenous oxygen difference is a measure of the amount of oxygen taken up from the blood by the tissues. The greater the amount of oxygen extracted by the tissues, the greater the arteriovenous oxygen difference.
Arteriovenous anastomosis a direct connection between an artery and a vein that acts as a shunt to bypass the capillary bed. These occur in areas where a high volume blood supply is needed only intermittently, e.g. the intestine.
Arteriovenous fistulas: This is the most serious complication of large arteriovenous fistulas. Since your blood flows more quickly through an arteriovenous fistula than it would if your blood flowed through a normal course of arteries, capillaries and veins, your heart pumps harder to compensate for the drop in blood pressure (called high-output heart failure).
