Among the main results the female sex (52.7%), the 51-60 age group (55.6%), hypertension and diabetes mellitus prevailed as the most common risk factors, as well as the AVF complication at wrist level, mainly in females (34.2%). It was concluded that the arteriovenous fistula complications depend on the presence or not of risk factors that can be a negative marker that affects the patient's life quality and per se determine the survival time
