The relationship between cadaveric donor age and the logarithm of the relative risk of graft loss from all causes for pediatric recipients of cadaver-donor renal transplantations. The "perfect" donor is 21 years of age. The risk of graft loss is higher when the grafts used are from either younger or older donors. An equivalent risk of graft loss exists from donors who are 6 and 55 years of age. (From Harmon [10]; with permission.)
