Abstract

1. 1. Four cases of segmental pancreatic transplantation are reported. 2. 2. Experimental studies of pancreatic duct to ureter anastomosis in the dog are summarized. 3. 3. The technic of segmental pancreatic transplantation and of pancreatic duct to ureter anastomosis is described. 4. 4. The pancreatic duct to ureter anastomosis, both experimentally and clinically, is a simple, effective technic for providing exocrine drainage of the transplanted pancreatic segment. 5. 5. The three patients receiving segmental pancreatic transplants are alive. Two have functioning pancreatic grafts, one beyond six months. This last patient also has a functioning kidney transplant.
