How Long to Live for Children after Kidney Transplant

2012-12-22 11:42

Kidney transplant is a lifesaving therapy for children who have serious kidney dysfunction. It can improve their life quality and prolong their life span significantly. How long to live for children after kidney transplant?

It is hard to predict the life span of children after kidney transplant because it is affected by variables. On average, a transplanted kidney from a living donor functions for around 20 years, and a kidney from a decreased donor functions for around 10 years. When the new kidney stops functioning, they have to go back on dialysis again and will wait for another kidney transplant.

As mentioned above, Kidney Transplant from living donor can bring the children a longer life span and also can increase the success rate of surgery significantly. Besides this factor, the life span of children after kidney transplant is also affected by the following factors.


Kidney rejection is a major risk after kidney transplant. If acute rejection occurs, the transplanted kidney may fail just within several days and even hours after surgery. Chronic rejection can cause the new kidney to fail in several years. Therefore, it is very important to reduce the impacts of rejection on kidneys effectively.


Age refers to the age of both recipient and donor. As children are growing up, they can recover more quickly than the elderly. If the donor is young, it can increase the success rate of the transplant surgery and prolong the life span of the children.

Health care

Care after kidney transplant plays a vital role in affecting the life span of children. As the children are small, they are not able to take care of them well. Therefore, parents should take more care of their children. After kidney transplant, the parents should resume daily diet for their children after talking with their doctors. They should avoid strenuous exercise and avoid trauma to abdomen. Meanwhile, the parents should supervise their children to take anti-rejection medications and other medicines on time.
