Abstract

To evaluate the influence of simultaneous pancreas-kidney (SPK) transplantation on the quality of life of diabetic recipients with end-stage renal disease. We performed a retrospective analysis of the data of diabetic patients with end-stage renal disease and evaluated the quality of life of the recipients using SF-36 health survey. One patient died of cerebrovascular accident, and 7 patients recovered smoothly. During the follow-up lasting for a mean of 23.3 months, the blood glucose, C-peptide and creatine levels of the patients remained stable. The score of 8 domains of SF-36 of the diabetic recipient at 2 years after SPK transplantation showed a significant improvement compared with that before the operation, similar to that of Chinese normal population(P > 0.05). SPK transplantation can achieve a significant improvement of the quality of life of diabetic patients with end-stage renal disease.
