The combination of MMF with tacrolimus (TAC) is the most common protocol, it is considered the gold standard for new protocols. In the last few(More)
Herein we report our experience in renal transplantation in 38 children (40 transplants), ages 1 to 5 years, between 1989 and 2005. Demographics as well as patient and graft survivals are reported. Mean age at transplantation was 3.3 +/- 1.3 years, and mean weight was 14 kg (range, 5.7-25 kg); 92.5% were Caucasian, 7.5% African-Brazilian. The main etiology(More)
From 1977 to July 2002, 1,376 renal transplants were performed at Santa Casa of Porto Alegre. The number of transplants and the patient and graft survival rates have been rising each year since 1987. The overall one-year graft survival rates were 90% for living donor recipients and 80% for cadaver donor recipients, respectively; however, the patient and(More)
