In this study we have investigated blood glucose and serum free insulin response to glucose and to arginine orally or intravenously, 3 months and 3 years after a successful segmental, neoprene-injected, pancreas transplantation. Serum insulin responses to different secretagogues were normal 3 months after transplantation; they remained normal up to 3 years(More)
Monoclonal components (MC) are detected in as high as 30 % of renal transplant recipients. Our aim was to evaluate the incidence, relevance and consequence of monoclonal components in patients with Type I (insulin-dependent) diabetes who received kidney (n = 22), kidney and whole pancreas (n = 41), kidney and segmental pancreas (n = 24) and kidney and(More)
Results of 33 simultaneous pancreas and kidney transplantations performed at the San Raffaele Hospital, Milan, Italy are presented. In 26 cases segmental neoprene duct-injected grafts were transplanted and in seven cases, duodenopancreatic bladder-drained grafts. Five-year patient, kidney and pancreas survival were respectively, 89%,72% and 58%. Five-year(More)
Ninety-seven pancreatic grafts in 92 insulin-dependent diabetic patients were performed during the last 11 years. Eighty-three of these grafts were carried out after neoprene duct injection, the other patients underwent pancreato-duodenal transplantation. In 80 cases, a double pancreas and kidney graft was performed. Five different immunosuppressive(More)
The aim of our study was to evaluate the effects of haemodialysis, kidney transplantation and simultaneous kidney and pancreas transplantation on survival of diabetic subjects and on kidney function. 40 Type 1 (insulin-dependent) diabetic patients received a kidney transplantation: in 31 cases the kidney was transplanted simultaneously to a pancreas graft(More)
