*Purpose: To report on the Spanish Pancreas Transplantation experience in controlled donation after circulatory death (cDCD) by analyzing the normothermic regional perfusion (NRP) and super-rapid recovery
*Methods: Data from January 2015 to December 2020 were analyzed regarding pancreas transplantations using cDCD donors
*Results: Some 471 pancreas transplants were performed, 20 being from cDCD donors.NRP was used in 18 pancreases.The median functional WIT was 10 (7-15.5) min. NRP was run for 113.5 (91.5-134.5) minutes. Pancreas cold ischemia was 412.5 (330-636.7) minutes. Surgical complications were present in 70% of cases.Two patients of the NRP group presented with primary pancreas graft non-function. After a median follow-up of 13.6 (5.6-36.4) months, the 1 and 5-year overall pancreas survival rate was 85% for the whole series, 83.3% for NRP group and 100% for SSR group.Overall 1 and 5-year patient survival was 94.7%, with no group differences
*Conclusions: To date, this is the largest series describing the use of postmortem NRP in cDCD pancreas transplantation, providing competitive results in terms of graft/patient survival
