In brief: Graft survival

Over all graft survival at 3 months is 85%, 1 year is 77%, 5 years is 54% and 10 years is 36%.
These don't mean all were rejected. They could stop working for a lot of different reasons but rejection is one of them.

Although acute rejection is common, nearly all rejection episodes can be reversed. Unfortunately, each rejection episode damages the pancreas and lowers the ability of the pancreas to continue doing a good job controlling your sugar level.

In brief: Rejection

That is a difficult question to answer, but a lot of information can be found on the iptr web site.
1yr immunologi graft loss rates are 2.1% for spk, 5.5% for pak and 6.0% for pta, but individual results depend on immunosuppresion and compliance with medications.
