Pediatric Abdominal Organ Transplantation

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Pediatric liver and kidney transplantation have become the standard and accepted treatment for children with end-stage renal and liver disease. Since the first successful kidney transplant in 1954 by Dr Joseph Murray and the first liver transplant by Dr Thomas Starzl, the scope of indications for visceral organ transplantation as well as the range of recipient and donor ages has expanded. The first pediatric liver and kidney transplants, simultaneous multivisceral transplants, living-donor and donation-after-cardiac-death organs have evolved rapidly into the standard of care for end-stage renal and liver failure in children.
