Background: Bladder drainage in pancreas transplantation technique has declined due to concern over complications such as severe dehydration, acidosis, hemorrhagic cystitis and recurrent urinary infections necessitating enteric conversion. We sought to study the impact of enteric conversion on the pancreas graft.
Methods: We analyzed 919 pancreas transplant recipients with bladder drainage, of which 177 underwent enteric conversion post-transplant. The data is left truncated at the starting of 2003, as this is when follow-up and retrospective data abstraction began. Multivariate Cox proportional hazards model were used to assess the impact of conversion as a time-dependent covariate on acute rejection, death censored graft survival and patient survival.
Results: In the Cox proportional hazards model, conversion was associated with a 2.3 fold increase in the risk of acute rejection- HR 2.30 (95% CI 1.44, 3.67), p 0.0005. Conversion was not associated with graft loss or mortality.

Conclusion: Enteric conversion as a time dependent variable was associated with increased risk of rejection but not increased risk of graft loss or mortality. The decision to convert should take into account this increased risk.
