As demand for donor pancreases increases, attempts are being made to utilize even marginal grafts for transplantation. Injury during pancreas recovery can predispose to posttransplant complications and graft loss. Early recognition and correction can salvage these grafts. The authors report an instance of poor segmental perfusion of the pancreas graft that was salvaged by pancreas head resection and enteric drainage through a Roux-en-Y pancreatico-jejunostomy.
