In patients with type 1 diabetes simultaneous pancreas and kidney transplantation preserves long-term kidney graft ultrastructure and function better than transplantation of kidney alone

Abstract

In patients with type 1 diabetes and end-stage renal disease (ESRD) we aimed to determine whether long-term normoglycaemia, as achieved by successful simultaneous pancreas and kidney (SPK) transplantation, would preserve kidney graft structure and function better than live donor kidney (LDK) transplantation alone. Estimated GFR (eGFR) was calculated in SPK… (More)
