Pediatric kidney transplantation part 71

KIDNEY BIOPSY

Kidney biopsies can find signs of rejection even though your child does not show any outward symptoms or signs. Biopsies are usually not done on a routine hospital ward but in a designated area and under sedation. Some transplant centers  perform kidney biopsies on a routine schedule (protocol biopsies) to monitor for rejection. Other centers perform biopsies only if there is a concern for rejection or other kidney problem.

A pathologist looks at small sample of kidney tissue under a microscope for signs of rejection. The results from this  study are reported back as a number under a special grading scale.
