Introduction: Simultaneous kidney-pancreas (SKP) transplantation has become the best treatment option for patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD) and type 1 diabetes (T1D). In the last two decades type 2 diabetes (T2D) started to be included as a new indication for transplant. Currently it has become between 8.5 and 30% of total number of pancreas transplant performed. Aim: Report our experience in kidney-pancreas transplant. Material and Methods: Retrospective analysis of kidney-pancreas transplant performed between April 2008- Nov 2015. We analyzed recipients´ characteristics, graft function, pancreas, kidney and patients´ survival comparing transplants in T1D and T2D recipients. Results: Forty five patients were transplanted, 34 were T1D (33 SKP and 1 pancreas transplant alone), eleven (24.5%) were T2D received SKP transplant. Patient's characteristics:age, BMI and C-peptide levels pre transplantwere analyzed, only C-peptide was statistical significance, p=0.001. Comparative results of grafts functions are represented in table 1. Patients and graft survival are represented in table 2.

|Glycemia levels mg/dl||178/123*||87.2/91.9*||97.1/97.9*||100.7/93.9*|
|Creatinine levels mg/dl||–||1/1.2*||1.3/1.3*||1.2/1.1*|
|T1D patients||T2D patients||P value|
|Patients survival at 1 and 5 years||88/88%||89/74%||NS|
|Pancreas graft survival at 1 and 5 years||82/82%||89/74%||NS|
|Kidney graft survival at 1 and 5 years||85/77%||89/74%||NS|
Conclusion: Under strict selective criteria for pancreas transplant, results in T2D patients are comparable to T1D recipients at our center.
