Total of 80 pediatric kidney transplants, the youngest being 5.5 months old, have been performed in our center in the last two years. Pediatric Kidney Transplant Children who have the chance to have transplant can continue their lives, their education and come together with their families in a healthy way with regular follow-up namely, children can regain their life and future with organ transplant. The rate of pediatric transplant among the total number of transplants is between 10% – 1%, and the factors that cause kidney failure in this age group can be congenital or may occur later.
Among the main reasons are ‘vesicoureteral reflux’, which is the backflow of urine to the kidney, stone disease due to metabolic problems, inflammatory diseases of the kidney and infections. Emergency Pediatric Kidney Transplant It comes to the fore when all vascular pathways are occluded over time during the dialysis process of chronic kidney patients and when peritoneal dialysis becomes impossible (peritonitis, intra-abdominal surgery and complications of peritoneal dialysis). The condition of the patient is reported and submitted to the National Coordination Center. If approved, it will be offered to the national cadaver donation system. Emergency kidney transplant is performed when medical facilities allow.
