Abstract

Introduction: Islet auto-transplantation (IAT) is increasingly being performed to prevent brittle diabetes following pancreatic resection in patients with benign pancreatic diseases. While patients undergoing total or completion pancreatectomy clearly benefit from IAT, the glycemic benefit of IAT in patients undergoing partial pancreatic resection is not known. We aimed to determine if IAT improved glycemic outcomes in patients undergoing partial pancreatectomy for benign pancreatic diseases. Methods: We performed a multicenter, retrospective case-control study of patients who underwent partial pancreatic resection with IAT at two tertiary care centers. Case patients were compared to controls who underwent partial pancreatic resection without IAT at one center prior to offering IAT. The primary outcome was the mean change in pre vs. post-operative HgA1c following transplant as well as the development of new post-operative diabetes. Results: 9 patients requiring partial pancreatectomy for benign disease underwent IAT and were compared to 13 historical controls without IAT. Baseline characteristics were similar between groups including age, etiology of pancreatitis, the presence of diabetes and pre-operative HgA1c (5.7 vs. 5.2, p=0.448). With a median follow-up of 22 months, those who received an IAT had a smaller increase in their pre- vs. post-operative HgA1c (0.42 vs 2.83, p=0.004) and one case patient (14.3%) vs. three control patients (23.1%) developed new post-operative diabetes (p=0.581). Patients who underwent IAT had a shorter length of stay (6 days vs 11 days, p=0.039) compared to control patients. Conclusions: Patients undergoing partial pancreatic resection for benign pancreatic disease should be considered for IAT, as long-term glycemic outcomes are improved in those undergoing transplant. The shorter length of hospital stay is likely related to less brittle glucose control after the surgery with some endogenous insulin production by auto-islet graft function.
