There is hope!! Info below is for others looking into TP-AIT as well.

Hi diane – thank you for your interest. Glancing at your history, I do think that you may be a candidate for tp-ait……….the one issue is obviously that your heart is ok (I presume it is since you had recent stenting and thus the coronary disease is ‘treated’)

I will cc my colleague Dr. Harris who is also involved in our islet autotxp program and performs the pancreatectomies.

Take care, andy
