Abstract

Ultrasonography plays a pivotal role in the postoperative and long-term follow-up of pediatric solid organ transplants. Pediatric solid organ transplantation can vary from adult transplantation in many ways, including postoperative anatomy and potential complications. A firm grasp of patient-specific anatomy and the patient's clinical status goes a long way in accurate interpretation of posttransplant sonography. Solid organ transplants in small children are, in general, more susceptible to vascular complication. Pediatric renal transplants are prone to urologic complications, such as reflux, compared with adults.
