Isolated failure of the renal graft after simultaneous kidney-pancreas transplantation (SPK) is a rare but potential outcome. Many of these patients are candidates for kidney retransplantation. This paper describes a series of 3 patients who underwent successful kidney retransplantation after SPK. The operation was completed through an extraperitoneal incision without disruption of the pancreas graft or need for a transplant nephrectomy.
