Abstract: Background: Simultaneous pancreas-kidney transplantation (SPK) is an established therapy for diabetes mellitus (DM) patients with associated end stage renal disease. We report the initial results of SPK in our institution afterqualification as transplantation program. Patients and methods: Between September 2017 and July 2018, we performed 3 SPK in type 1 diabetic patientswith end-stage renal disease. All grafts were procured from brain-dead marginal donors according Pittsburgcriteria. Results: The recipients were 2 men and 1 woman with a mean age of 43 ± 5.4 years. Mean time from DMdiagnosis and time on dialysis were 25.7 ± 3.9 years and 19.7 ± 9.1 months. The mean age and HbA1C valueof donor were 56.7 ± 0.5 years and 5.67 ± 0.05%. The pancreatic grafts were transplanted intraperitoneally inthe right iliac fossa. Two patients required a relaparotomy due to arterial anastomotic hemorrhage and twopatients developed acute cellular rejection. With a median follow-up of 13 (6–15) months, patient's and graft'ssurvival rate were 100%. All patients showed HbA1C within normal range, but oral glucose tolerance testshowed DM pattern in two patients at 3 months after transplantation. Conclusions: In our initial experience with SPK, mid-term grafts and patient survival appear comparable to theresults reported in literature. Despite the limited availability of donors and the use of grafts from marginaldonors, a quality pancreas transplantation program can be established even in a small-volume centers. Nonetheless further improvement in surgical techniques and meticulous management appear mandatory.
