Abstract

Combined kidney-pancreas transplantation is the treatment of choice for end-stage diabetic nephropathy. Weight gain post-transplant increases the risk for post-transplant complications and death due to cardiovascular events. Gastric pacemakers have been used for therapy of diabetic gastropathy and for the treatment of moderate morbid obesity. We report a patient who experienced significant weight gain following successful kidney-pancreas transplantation and was thereafter successfully treated for diabetic gastroparesis and morbid obesity by use of a laparoscopically implanted gastric pacemaker.
