Abstract: The objective of the study is to determine whether evolution in surgical techniques results in minimization of technical graft loss after simultaneous pancreas-kidney transplantation (SPKTx). Eighty consecutive patients with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus and end-stage nephropathy, and who received SPKTx, were studied. Patient, pancreas and kidney survival at 5 years were 89, 84 and 84% respectively.
