Transplantation in children with kidney failure once presented many technical, immunologic, and logistic problems that led to worse patient and allograft survival, as compared with adults. Advances in all these areas and the development of pediatric-trial groups have resulted in dramatic improvements, such that young children now have the best long-term graft survival among all age groups, including adults.
