Conclusions 1. By a modification of the Tripode and Sherwin method, the pancreas can be transplanted into the stomach without danger of immediate acute pancreatitis or peritonitis. 2. The intragastric portion of the transplanted pancreas is eventually digested away. 3. The transplanted pancreas retains its external and internal function and shows no sign of atrophy. 4. Complete exclusion of the external secretion of the pancreas by stated methods produces an abnormal deposition of fat in the liver and concomitant degeneration and atrophy of the liver cells. 5. Lipid deposition and degeneration of the liver does not occur in pancreatic transplants.
