Abstract

We appreciate the comments and observations of the pancreas transplant team from Barcelona, Spain. In their letter to the editor entitled "Do we still need to demonstrate the survival benefit of pancreas transplantation", the authors do not contest the finding in our publication "The Survival Advantage of Pancreas After Kidney Transplant"(1) that receiving a kidney followed by a pancreas provides a survival advantage over staying on the waitlist waiting for both organs.
