Reassessment of the vascularization of renal subcapsular islet grafts.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to evaluate the functional significance of the renal capsular vessels in renal subcapsular islet grafts. METHODS Syngeneic islets were transplanted under the left renal capsule of diabetic Wistar-Furth rats. At 4 weeks post-transplantation, the left renal artery and vein were ligated (group A); in group B, the left… (More)
