Pre Transplant

Before undergoing this procedure, you may need to undergo evaluation, which includes:

General health exam

This consists of a physical examination and cancer screening tests to evaluate your overall health.

Blood tests

You may need to undergo different blood tests to know about gene compatibility.

Tissue typing

It includes series of blood tests to evaluate the compatibility or closeness of tissue between the organ donor and recipient.

Imaging tests

Various tests like computerised tomography (CT) scan, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), or positron emission tomography (PET) scan may be recommended to look for any abnormality in the organs.


In this test, a probe is passed over your chest, and through this probe, sound waves will bounce back to generate a picture of the heart muscles. This helps the doctor in identifying the abnormality.

Cath study

This test is done to check the pressure in the heart. The catheter is placed into the vein in the groin or neck after numbing the area. This helps in measuring the pressure levels in the heart chambers and the main blood vessels.

Social and psychological evaluation

These evaluations include various measures to assess your stress, financial issues, and support by 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.

Complications of a pancreas transplant

As with every surgery, the risk of complications is there, and a pancreas transplant is no exception. However, it is not always mandatory that a patient develops these complications, but it is good to be aware of them. Below are some of the common complications linked with pancreas transplant:

  • Rejection: Rejection is the major complication that arises after transplant surgery. However, after taking all the precautions and matching the donor organ in the best possible way, the chances of pancreas rejection are notably less. Therefore, it is recommended to get in touch with your doctor if you observe any of the following symptoms:
  • Fever
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Reduction in the quantity of urine
  • Painful urination
  • Blood clot: Formation of a blood clot in the blood vessels supplying the donor pancreas are some of the common complications experienced.
  • Pancreatitis: There is an inflammation of the pancreas experienced by the patient shortly after the transplantation process.
  • Infection: Due to a compromised immune system, your doctor may prescribe antifungal, antibacterial, and antiviral medicines to reduce the infection risk.
  • Excessive sugar in the blood (hyperglycemia)
  • Other metabolic problems
  • Urinary complications such as urine leakage or urinary tract infection
  • Failure of the donated pancreas
