Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The vast majority of pancreas grafts are obtained from cadaver, heart-beating donors, and small portion from living donor. Although pancreas grafts from non-heart-beating donors have been successfully transplanted, this practice has been extremely limited [1, 2]. The suitability of a cadaver pancreas donor is based on general criteria common to all organ procurements as well as on specific pancreas-related factors.
