Abstract

Background Under a revision to the law in 2010, the number of pancreas transplantations from brain-dead donors has been increasing in Japan. We started a new Pancreatic Transplant Program at Fujita Health University Hospital in September 2012. Methods A total of 11 cases of pancreas transplantation from brain-dead donors performed at Fujita Health University Hospital were analyzed in terms of the background characteristics of the donors and recipients and the outcomes. Results The mean age of the recipients was 45.2 years, and all recipients had a long-term history of diabetes (mean: 32.5 years). In the simultaneous pancreas and kidney transplantation (SPK) cases, the patients also had a long history of hemodialysis (mean: 8.0 years). Although the average donor age was 42.5 years, 90% of the donors were marginal donors, defined according to the following factors: (1) >45 years old, (2) death from cardiovascular disease, (3) episodes of cardiac arrest, (4) use of high doses of catecholamines. The pancreatic graft survival rate was 100%, although 1 patient required a small amount of insulin to maintain euglycemia. In addition, the kidney graft survival rate was also 100% in the SPK cases. Conclusions The new Pancreatic Transplant Program at Fujita Health University has provided excellent outcomes for type 1 diabetic patients.
