Kidney and Pancreas Transplant


A kidney-pancreas transplant includes inserting a kidney and a pancreas into a patient who has type 1 diabetes-related renal failure. In many cases, the deceased donor of both transplanted organs may be the same. Additionally, dead donor kidney-pancreas transplants have very high success rates. The best outcomes are frequently attained when the kidney and pancreas both come from a deceased donor. This is as a result of the significantly reduced likelihood of rejection. One kidney and a portion of the pancreas have, however, already been donated in a number of successful living donor transplants.
