According to the International Pancreas Transplantation Registry’s 2000 Midyear Update, the number of pancreas transplants performed worldwide has steadily increased since 1995. Pancreas graft survival rates at 1 year now range between 70% for pancreas transplant alone (PTA) recipients and 85% for simultaneous pancreas and kidney (SPK) recipients.1 These excellent, much improved outcomes have been achieved thanks to a marked decrease in immunologic graft loss and in technical failures over the last 10 years.
