About This Topic
Pediatric solid organ transplantation is filled with many unique considerations and complexities such as naïve immune systems, dynamic growth and development, and a consent need for assessments and changes. Children are not little adults and must have specific protocols and procedures dedicated to them. They must also have a specially trained and dedicated team that understands these considerations. This special issue will address some of the challenges and opportunities faced when transplanting pediatric patients including the pre-transplant, peri-transplant, and post-transplant considerations.
