Figure 1645

Data from the North American Pediatric Renal Transplant Cooperative Study of patient mortality by recipient age. A significant difference (P < 0.001) in 1-year mortality rates by age groups occurred: 13.6% (21 of 154) for 0- to 1-year-old recipients; 8.0% (33 of 413) for 2- to 5-year-old recipients; 3.6% (33 of 926) for 6- to 12-year-old recipients; and 4.5% (43 of 964) for 13- to 17-year-old recipients. Mortality also is increased for recipients of kidneys from young cadaveric donors. A dramatic increase in cumulative mortality is seen, with increasing concordance between young donor and recipient ages. (From Tejani and coworkers [39]; with permission.)
