PANCREAS TRANSPLANTATION FOR TYPE 2 DIABETES : INDICATION AND PATIENT SELECTION
Speaker: Matthew Cooper

Overview:

Despite a clear demonstration of the benefits of solid-organ pancreas transplantation for patients with diabetes mellitus, volumes continue to decrease throughout the US. Improvements in quality of life and the ability to abrogate the complications of dysregulated glucose control has now allowed the procedure to be offered to many with Type 2 DM. Indications and patient selection, however, are critical both to individual outcomes and to further advance national support of pancreas transplantation for all. This webinar will share both published data and personal experience on program resources and patient demographics that remain important in the evaluation and transplantation of patients with Type 2 DM.
