Abstract

OBJECTIVE. Bowel-related complications from pancreas transplantation account for much of the postsurgical morbidity. In a review of 98 pancreas transplant recipients, we found 19 (19.4%) with such complications. CONCLUSION. The most common problems were small-bowel obstruction and anastomotic leaks. Adhesions and internal hernias accounted for most postoperative bowel obstructions.
