abstract

  • Single pediatric kidneys from donors younger than or equal to 5 years can be transplanted into standard adult recipients without compromising outcomes. Transplanting single kidneys from pediatric donors less than or equal to 10 kg into standard adult recipients is associated with an increased risk of delayed graft function; however, this does not compromise 2-year graft survival or function.
