Abstract

Solid organ transplantation is now routinely performed at many institutions. Pediatric organ recipients present difficult challenges to pediatric anesthesiologists. Physiologic, anatomic, and pharmacologic derangements in this population may make both the surgical procedure and the anesthetic management complicated. This article presents an overview of the unique problems and the strategies to solve them in this population.
