In the past decade, pancreas transplantation (PTx) has become increasingly attractive as a curative treatment in patients with labile diabetes and secondary complications. In the United Kingdom, the percentage of deceased-donors utilized for PTx increased 5-fold between 2003 and 2007. The trend towards a higher number of annual pancreas transplantations is also observed in Sweden. The increasing activity and the excellent outcome are consequences of meticulous surgery, effective immunsuppression and adequate follow-up. The present report descibes the current status of PTx and shows the short- and long-term results during the last decade in Sweden.
