BACKGROUND There is little data on renal function in pediatric heart transplant recipients. Early rejection is a major concern and most units run high cyclosporin A (CyA) levels during the 2 to 3 months after transplantation. We sought to document long-term renal function after transplantation and to assess influence of early CyA levels. METHODS We reviewed all of our pediatric transplants between June 1985 and August 1998 who survived longer than 6 months (n = 54). Glomerular filtration rate… CONTINUE READING
