Abstract

Urologic complications are frequently encountered after pancreas transplantation with a graft duodenocystostomy. Urinary infections, hematuria, and irritative voiding symptoms are some of the most frequent complications with a bladder-drained pancreas allograft. While voiding dysfunction is common in these patients due to underlying neuropathy, to our knowledge, we report the first case of obstructive uropathy in a female due to retained necrotic graft material.
