Abstract

Pancreatic graft thrombosis is the primary cause of nonimmunologic graft loss, with an incidence ranging from 5% to 15%. Therefore, developing a screening test to detect graft thrombosis after pancreatic transplantation is important. We created a screening test to assess graft thrombosis after pancreatic transplantation using contrast-enhanced ultrasonography (CEUS) with Sonazoid in addition to Doppler ultrasonography. A total of seven patients were examined using CEUS after undergoing pancreatic transplantation. All patients were observed to have a clear blood flow from the horizontal region to the peripheral region of the splenic vein in the pancreatic graft, and only one of the seven patients exhibited a blood flow in the horizontal portion of the splenic vein on Doppler ultrasonography performed immediately after pancreatic transplantation. Results. from CEUS with Sonazoid showed the blood flow in the splenic vein and parenchyma of the pancreatic graft in detail, despite the slow and lateral blood flow in the splenic vein of the pancreatic graft immediately after transplantation.
