Abstract

Renal transplantation is the optimal and preferred treatment for children with end-stage renal disease. Pediatric kidney transplantation results have improved significantly over the years and the actuarial survival of the children with renal transplantation has become excellent. These improvements are due to many factors, including better immunosuppressive regimens and therefore a decrease in acute rejection episodes and possible improvement of graft survival. The concentration of care in specialized pediatric transplantation centers allowed the improvement of kidney transplants also in children less than 6 years old. The same success is not always achieved in infants. The selection of the donor is another important factor. The survival rate of renal transplantation is better in case of living-related donors. Renal transplants performed from cadaveric donors 6 years of age. Owing to the limited members of cadaveric kidneys available for transplants, also the donors
