The article discusses the children's survival in kidney transplantation. This study has used questionnaires containing patient identification data such as sex, birth date, and primary renal disease. Its completeness of the pediatric survey has been assessed in the demographic reports, wherein 100% of the 97 specialized pediatric centers returned patient questionnaires in 1984, and 97% in 1985.
