FiGURE 16-44

Data from the 1995 North American Pediatric Renal Transplant Cooperative Study showing a total of 214 deaths. Infection was the leading cause of death, occurring in 74 patients. This graph depicts the survival distribution estimates by donor source. Infants aged under 2 years at the time of transplantation have a mortality rate of 14%. This rate is significantly higher (P < 0.001) than in other age groups, with a mortality rate between 4.7% and 8.0%. (From Warady and coworkers [5]; with permission.)
