Pre Transplant in Pune

Evaluation Prior to Procedure

Prior to undergoing this medical procedure, a thorough evaluation including the following tests are performed:

General Health Examination

A physical examination and cancer screening tests are performed to assess overall health.

Blood tests

A range of blood tests is conducted to determine gene compatibility and other necessary factors.

Tissue typing

A series of blood tests is conducted to evaluate the compatibility or closeness of tissue between the organ donor and recipient.

Imaging tests

Tests such as computerized tomography (CT) scan, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), or positron emission tomography (PET) scan may be recommended to detect any abnormalities in the organs.


This test involves passing a probe over your chest, with sound waves bouncing back to generate a picture of the heart muscles. It aids in identifying abnormalities in the heart muscles.

Cath study

Conducted to assess the pressure in the heart, this test involves placing a catheter into the vein in the groin or neck after numbing the area. It helps measure pressure levels in the heart chambers and main blood vessels.

Social and psychological evaluation

These evaluations encompass various measures to assess stress, financial issues, and support from friends and family.

The Pancreas Transplant process

The patient is given general anesthesia.

Intravenous line
Medicines will be given through an intravenous (IV) line in the arm.

A cut is made in your tummy, and a donor pancreas is placed in your body.

The pancreas is then attached to the nearby blood vessels and the bowel.

Incision closure
The old pancreas will be left in place, and it will continue to produce the important digestive juices post-transplant. The surgeon will close the tummy, and at this point transplant process is complete.

Pancreas Transplantation Complications

As with any surgical intervention, complications may arise following a pancreas transplant. While not every patient necessarily encounters these complications, being aware of them is prudent. The following are common complications associated with pancreas transplant:

  • Rejection: Organ rejection is a major post-transplant complication. However, diligent precautions and meticulous donor organ matching significantly reduce the likelihood of pancreas rejection. It is advisable to consult your doctor if you notice symptoms such as fever, nausea, vomiting, reduced urine output, or painful urination.
  • Blood Clot Formation: The occurrence of blood clots in the blood vessels supplying the donor pancreas is a frequently encountered complication.
  • Pancreatitis: Inflammation of the pancreas may occur shortly after the transplantation process.
  • Infection: Due to a compromised immune system, your doctor may prescribe antifungal, antibacterial, and antiviral medications to mitigate the risk of infection.
  • Hyperglycemia: Excessive sugar levels in the blood may be observed.
  • Other Metabolic Issues
  • Urinary Complications: These may include urine leakage or urinary tract infection.
  • Failure of the Donated Pancreas
