Pancreases from donors aged 45 years or older were used in 1.6 of 147 PTx procedures (11%). The final decision to accept a graft for PTx was based mainly on the quality of visceral perfusion and the gross appearance of the pancreas and the vessels. There were 9 men and 7 women, ranging in age from 45 to 55 years (average, 48.9 years) who were donors, due to cerebrovascular accidents (n = 11; 68.7%). Among the donor group, 5 patients were receiving multiple vasopressor agents (31.2%), and 2 had a history of cardiac arrest (12.5%). Pancreases were transplanted either simultaneously with a cadaveric kidney (n = 6) or as solitary grafts (n = 10).
