The University of Minnesota Pancreas Transplant Program began in 1966 [1] and by January 1988 included 224 cases [2]. Several changes in recipient selection immunosuppression, and surgical technique have occurred over the years [3–12]. Our past and current results and protocols are briefly summarized here.
