Indications for pediatric liver transplantation.

This review discusses the indications for orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) in children and provides guidelines for the appropriate time to list children for transplant and the importance of malnutrition and poor development as listing criteria is stressed.

A comparison of the effects of dialysis and renal transplantation on the survival of older uremic patients.

Renal transplantation seems to confer a substantial survival advantage over dialysis in patients with end-stage renal failure who are rigorously screened and considered suitable for renal transplantation.

COMPARISON OF MORTALITY IN ALL PATIENTS ON DIALYSIS , PATIENTS ON DIALYSIS AWAITING TRANSPLANTATION , AND RECIPIENTS OF A FIRST CADAVERIC TRANSPLANT

Among patients with end-stage renal disease, healthier patients are placed on a waiting list for transplantation, and long-term survival is better among those on the waiting list who eventually undergo transplantation.

Risks and benefits of kidney and pancreas transplantation for diabetic patients.

The risks and benefits of combined kidney and pancreas transplantation are outlined in this review and should be carefully considered by potential transplant recipients and their physicians.

Increased immunosuppressive vulnerability in elderly renal transplant recipients.

It is possible that the vulnerability to immunosuppression of older renal transplant patients may be very different from that of younger patients, and to test this hypothesis, a large group of renal transplant recipients were analyzed with regard to their balance of acute rejection versus death due to infection.

Prevalence, predictors, and consequences of late nephrology referral at a tertiary care center.

It is concluded that late referral to the nephrologist is common in the United States and is associated with poor pre-ESRD care.

Patient survival after renal transplantation; more than 25 years follow-up.

Time-related changes in patient management were responsible for improved patient survival in the first year after transplantation during the study period, and there was no effect of the type of pretransplantation dialysis or the duration of pretranplantation haemodialysis on post-transplantation mortality.
