Growing pains: Non‐adherence with the immunosuppressive regimen in adolescent transplant recipients
TLDR
One‐year graft and patient survival are better in adolescent transplant recipients (age 11–19 years) than in younger (age < 11’years) pediatric transplant recipients, but several groups found that long‐term outcomes in the adolescent age group are significantly worse than in young transplant recipients.

Restarting the Clock…Again: Ethical Considerations in Retransplantation
TLDR
Given that retransplantation survival rates are not as favorable as those for primary transplantation and that no studies involving quality of life and morbidity could be located, considerable thought should be given to this controversial practice.
Medication non‐adherence in the adolescent renal transplant recipient: A clinician's viewpoint *

TLDR
Advances in the areas of organ preservation and reduced-size liver transplantation have increased organ availability for children and significantly decreased mortality on transplant waiting lists, and newer methods of immunomodulation may yet lead to the eventual goal of donor-specific tolerance.
