Very small pediatric donor kidney transplantation in pediatric recipients
from Pediatric Transplantation
Kidneys from very small pediatric donors (age less than 5 years, weight less than 21 kg) may be a means to increase the donor pool for pediatric recipients. Transplantation of small pediatric kidneys is more commonly performed in adult recipients due to the increased risks of technical complications, thrombosis, and early graft failure.
