New transplant research from NY-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell
Date:4/29/2011

NEW YORK (April 29, 2011) -- Available for expert commentary on the latest research findings presented at the 2011 American Transplant Congress (ATC) in Philadelphia, April 30 to May 4, is Dr. Sandip Kapur, chief of transplant surgery and director of kidney and pancreas transplant programs at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center, and a leading authority on transplantation.

The following are some notable research studies by Dr. Kapur and colleagues being presented at the meeting:

  • Excellent Outcomes Shown for Pancreas Transplantation in Older Patients

    Due to improvements in the management of diabetes, there are an increasing number of older candidates for pancreas transplantation. Recent studies have been equivocal about outcomes for older patients, but, on the positive side, none have shown an increase in acute rejection or complication rates. In their retrospective review, Dr. Kapur and his co-investigators found that pancreas transplantation in older patients is safe and feasible, with excellent graft and patient outcomes. They report that with proper patient selection, older patients can safely receive a pancreas transplant without an increased risk of complications, infections requiring hospitalization, or cytomegalovirus (CMV) infections. Furthermore, these patients also benefit from a lower rejection rate over the lifespan of the transplant.

    Concurrent Session 19: Pancreas Transplantation: Clinical Management and Complications. Sunday, May 1, 2011, 4:12 p.m. Room 113 B.

  • Excellent Outcomes for Pancreas Transplantation in Underweight and Obese Patients

    Pancreas transplantation remains an important option for patients with Type 1 diabetes. Given the metabolic problems associated with diabetes, pancreas transplant candidates may struggle to maintain a healthy body mass index (BMI). As a result, extreme BMIs are sometimes encountered with this condition. Dr. Ka
