Abstract

Since the beginning of our experience in human pancreatic transplantation, the exocrine secretion of the graft has been suppressed by duct obstruction with Neoprene. This procedure induces an extensive fibrosis of the exocrine parenchyma with preserved morphology of the islet tissue. In July 1984, 54 pancreatic transplantations using the Neoprene injection technique were performed in 52 insulin-dependent diabetic recipients. Some clinical and technical aspects of this experience are reported here.
