Abstract

Pancreas transplantation has become an accepted therapeutic approach to treat insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, successfully restoring normoglycemia. In contrast, islet transplantation is still in the experimental phase, only a few operations having being performed worldwide. The aim of this review is to analyze the effects of pancreas transplantation on the late complications of diabetes and to report the endocrine-metabolic effects of pancreas and isles transplantation.
