The chapters of Dr. T. M. Barratt and colleagues (Chapter 36) and Dr. M. Broyer et al. (Chapter 35) in this book admirably set the background for the presentation of our experience in the transplantation of children age 5 years and under. In this chapter we will compare our experience with that of Barratt and Broyer to support our view that renal transplantation is feasible and is the preferred therapy for end-stage renal failure in the young child.
