The paper concerns presented at the congress results of European multicenter studies on pancreas transplantation, plans of further investigations, reports from transplant centers on prophylaxis, diagnosis and treatment of complications after pancreas transplantation with particular regard on organ thrombosis and factors that influence long-term results of treatment with pancreas transplantation.
