Pancreas transplantation in a patient after total pancreatectomy due to chronic pancreatitis – the first case in Poland
Languages of publication
Chronic pancreatitis is an inflammatory disease that may require surgical intervention. In some patients a total pancreatectomy is necessary. Such patients develop diabetes, which in some cases may be difficult to control. When standard insulin treatment is unsuccessful and the patient has frequent blood glucose swings with life-threatening hiper- and hypoglycemic episodes, a pancreas transplant should be considered.
