Abstract

Venous thrombosis of pancreas transplant allografts often leads to graft loss. It is an worrisome complication and difficult to treat, forming the most common nonimmunological cause of graft loss. Multiple risk factors have been implicated in the development of venous thrombosis of pancreas transplant. Color Doppler ultrasonography enables early diagnosis of venous thrombosis, thus increasing the possibility of graft-rescue treatments. Endovascular management of pancreatic transplant vascular complications is scant and in the form of case reports. We report a case of early detection of pancreatic graft venous thrombosis that was treated successfully by catheter-directed thrombolysis mechanical thrombectomy, percutaneous transluminal angioplasty, and stenting of portal vein.
