Data from the North American Pediatric Renal Transplant Cooperative Study showing that those patients receiving living donor kidneys who have congenital nephrotic syndrome (CNS), focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSG) (panel A) or hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) (panel B) had the lowest 2-year graft survival rates. These rates range from 74.3% to 80.6%. In patients with focal segmental glomerular sclerosis, graft failure was attributed to disease recurrence in 13 of 39 (33%) patients who received kidneys from living related donors. B, The patients with familial nephritis or cysti-nosis had the highest graft survival rates (88.9% and 92.9%, respectively). (From Kashton and coworkers [38]; with permission.)
