Kidney Transplant Volumes and Outcomes

Parents of potential organ transplant patients often ask about the number of kidney transplants done at CHOP and our transplant survival rates. We refer to these statistics as transplant volumes and outcomes.

Volumes

CHOP has performed 309 kidney transplants since 1993. These are the volumes for the past five years:

  • 2007 - 13 transplants
  • 2008 - 24 transplants
  • 2009 - 12 transplants
  • 2010 - 17 transplants
  • 2011 - 14 transplants

Outcomes

In transplant outcomes, a key concept is graft survival vs. patient survival. Graft survival can sometimes be different from patient survival. For example, a patient’s organ might stop functioning, but the patient survives and has another transplant. 

It is possible for three-year survival rates to exceed one-year survival because different groups of patients are followed for each time period.

Kidney Graft Survival (0-17 years old)

CHOP's kidney graft survival rates are higher than the national average rates at 1-month, 1-year and 3-years post-transplant.
