Graft (panel A) and patient (panel B) survival rates for pancreas transplantation alone (PTA). A much smaller number of PTAs have been performed in the United States compared with sequential pancreas after kidney (PAK) transplantations and simultaneous pancreas-kidney (SPK) transplantations. The patient survival rate for PTA is similar to those of SPK and PAK transplantation; however, the PTA graft survival rate has been closer to that of the PAK rate until the most recent transplantation era. Advancements in immuno-suppressive therapy have improved the 1-year graft survival rate of PTA transplantations from 56% to 74%. NS—not significant.
