Pediatric kidney transplantation: An overview
Kidney Transplantation in children is the treatment of choice to treat end stage renal disease. Improvements in immunosuppressive management have dramatically reduced the risk of early acute rejection and graft loss, however the long term results in terms of graft survival and morbidity still require search for new immunosuppressive regimens. Reducing of side effects are the challenges for improving the outcome of pediatric transplantation. This review will discuss the current trends and outcomes of the kidney transplantation in children.

Significant progress has been made in pediatric kidney transplantation. Advances in immunosuppression have dramatically decreased rates of acute rejection leading to improved short term graft survival but similar improvements in long term graft survival remain elusive. Changes in allocation policy provide the pediatric population with timely access to transplant but there remains concern about ...متن کامل
INTRODUCTION Our aim was to determine the frequency of peptic ulcer and Helicobacter pylori infection by gastrointestinal evaluations in pretransplantation phase in children with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-four children with ESRD (13 girls and 11 boys) with a mean age of 14.7 +/- 3.4 years on maintenance hemodialysis were included in this study. Upper gastroi...متن کامل
Recipient parenchymal lymphatic cells are crucial for direct and indirect pathways of allorecognition. We proposed that alemtuzumab, being infused several weeks pretransplant could eradicate peripheral lymphatic cells and promote donor-specific tolerance. We present here a single center, retrospective review of 101 consecutive living-donor kidney transplantations to pediatric patients aged from...متن کامل
Kidney transplantation in patients with end stage renal disease is preferred to dialysis because transplantation provides a better quality of life andimproved survival. However, the gap between the supply and demand for a renal allograft is widening and the waiting time is increasing. Iranian protocol, a controlled transplant program supported by the government for living unrelated donors, was ...متن کامل
Shock is one of the most frequently diagnosed, yet poorly understood disorders in the pediatric intensive care unit (PICU). The very definition of what constellation of physical signs and symptoms that comprise shock remains controversial, in part due to the vast array of disorders that cause shock in critically ill and injured children. Early management and reversal of the shock state is assoc...متن کامل
