Duck Jong Han, Takashi Kenmochi

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Since the first pancreas transplantation was performed in 1966 at the University of Minnesota, many centers have performed this operation, and the outcomes have been improved due to the use of better surgical techniques and immunosuppressants [1, 2]. Based on this improvement, various types of pancreas transplantation from deceased donors (DD) have been performed. However, living donor pancreas transplantation (LDPT) was first reported in the late 1970s, although the procedure is not performed widely [3].
