Resumen

MEDEIROS-DOMINGO, Mara et al. Renal transplantation in children. Rev. invest. clín. [online]. 2005, vol.57, n.2, pp.230-236. ISSN 0034-8376.

Despite being considered a high risk procedure, renal transplantation has been recognized for more than 20 years as the best therapeutic option for children with end-stage renal disease since it is superior than any available dialytic procedure in improving the neuropsychological development and the quality of life. Today pediatric patients have similar graft survival than adults, and 10 year-old children or less have better outcome than any other age group. These remarking results are due to the development of specialized pediatric transplant centers and research programs, improvement in the selection and preparation of donors and recipients, refinement of the surgical technique and the use of new immunossupressive drugs.

Palabras llave : Renal transplantation; Children; Graft survival; PTLD.
