Patients' and graft survival rates after pediatric kidney transplantation (KTx) were recently improved because of progress in immunosuppressants, perioperative care, and operative procedures. Therefore the quality of life and social outcome after the KTx were regarded as important and started gaining attention.
The patients who underwent KTx under 18 years old and spent over 10 years follow-up were included in this study. The average age at first KTx was 9.3±4.5 years, with 56 males and 50 females. The average age at last follow-up was 29.7±8.9 years, and follow-up periods after first KTx was 20.4±7.0 years. We evaluated the several points of the patients, including primary disease, kidney, growth and social outcome.
The primary diseases included congenital anomalies of the kidney and urinary tract (n= 47, 44.3%), focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (n= 19, 17.9%), congenital nephrotic syndrome (n= 5, 4.7%), and other conditions. Ratio of functioning graft at the last follow-up was 81.8%; 76 patients (68.9%) had first graft, 11 patients had second graft, and 2 patients had third graft. Average estimated GFR was 51.0±20.5 ml/min/1.73m2. Twenty patients received dialysis for graft failure; 19 patients for hemodialysis and one for peritoneal dialysis. Final height of males and females were 158.1±9.2 cm (-2.2±1.6 SD) and 149.1±6.4 cm (-1.7±1.２ SD), respectively. Fifty-eight (70.1%) patients excluded 24 students worked; 34 patients were office worker, 7 were medical related work, and others. Fourteen patients (19.5%) got married; males and females were 3 and 11, respectively. Three females of thirties and two females of forties had one child each.
Favorable graft survival rate was noted in this study. Final height was not enough, particularly in male patients. The rate of employment (70.1%) was relatively high, but marriage and childbearing rate were still low in this era. Improving social outcome will be one of the important problems after pediatric KTx.
