Abstract

Uremic diabetics have better survival rates with a kidney transplant than on dialysis. Adding a pancreas graft induces insulin independence and if the graft survives for >1 year, risk-adjusted registry analyses show improved patient and graft survival. overall, however, as survival is similar for kidney-pancreas and kidney transplants alone from deceased pancreas donors, many questions remain.
