Ischemic steal syndrome (ISS) is an uncommon complication of arteriovenous (AV) access placement. Distal revascularization interval ligation (DRIL) is an alternative to preserve AV access and resolve ISS simultaneously. This case illustrates the problem of ISS and tissue loss, and its successful treatment after undergoing the DRIL procedure. Other options for management of ISS also are reviewed.
