Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Heterotopic pancreas duodenum transplantations performed on 32 dogs are described. No immunosuppressive therapy was applied, since the aim was to evolve a suitable operation technique and to evaluate the results. All animals survived the operation, the longest survival period was 6 days. Despite the apparently satisfactory circulatory conditions, in the majority of cases the cause of death was a partial necrosis or perforation of the duodenum. In spite of the difficulties encountered, the procedure appears to be promising.
