Follow-up of our patients was performed, respectively, 16, 14, and 12 months after pancreas transplantation. All three patients remained pain free, recovered their appetite, and acquired a considerable increase of the weight, while never presenting any symptom of clinical or chemical diabetes. Glucose tolerance test and serum levels of insulin and C-peptide were normal. Simultaneous blood samples from femoral veins, 4 months after transplantation, showed insulin levels significantly superior on the side of the graft. The angiographic control showed in all cases a perfect functioning of the graft.
