Pancreas Transplant

Picture of pancreas transplant

During a pancreas transplant, the recipient's diseased pancreas is left in place. The donated pancreas is placed in the front part of the abdomen and connected to the lower abdominal blood vessels. The donated duodenum is attached to either the recipient's intestine or bladder so that pancreatic secretions can drain.
