A total of 140 pancreatic transplants have been performed in 132 insulin-dependent diabetic patients at Lyon (France). Most cases received a double pancreatic and renal transplant. The duct obstruction technique was utilized in 113 segmental transplants. A total pancreatic transplant was performed in 27 patients, with duct obstruction in 27, GI tract derivation in 14, urinary tract derivation in 11 and intraductal obstruction in 2 patients. Utilizing quadruple immunosuppression, the one year survival rate was 90% and the transplant survival was 60%.
