Pediatric Renal Transplantation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Kidney transplantation in children involves many unique aspects. Surgical techniques are different in small children. Routine childhood immunizations may not be complete before transplantation. Growth is suboptimal in chronic renal failure, though it is partially recoverable with growth hormones and renal transplantation. Infections and posttransplant lymphoproliferative disorders are proportionately larger concerns in children. Grafting and patient survival have improved dramatically in recent decades.
