Abstract

Transplantation of the pancreas or islet cells constitutes surgical treatment for patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus. Pancreas transplantation is now an established procedure for the surgical treatment of diabetes mellitus. Islet cell transplantation has the potential to be the procedure of choice once it becomes more routine because of the minimal surgery involved. Included in this chapter are the pathophysiology of diabetes, rationale for transplantation, and the surgical procedure itself.
