Penile ischemia, a rare complication of diabetic end-stage renal disease, is usually treated by penectomy once conservative measures fail. We present a patient with diabetes mellitus and end-stage renal disease with penile ischemia that was successfully treated with an arteriovenous interposition bypass graft between the common femoral artery and the deep dorsal vein of the penis. Retrograde flow into the corpus spongiosum resulted in immediate pain relief and healing of the ischemic lesions.
