FLORES, Jorge et al. Intra-abdominal implantation of a kidney graft with two renal arteries in a low-weight pediatric recipient. First case reported in Paraguay. An. Fac. Cienc. Méd. (Asunción) [online]. 2021, vol.54, n.3, pp.143-150. ISSN 1816-8949.

Kidney transplantation of organs from adult donors implanted into a narrow anatomical cavity in underweight pediatric patients offers significant medical and surgical challenges to be considered. In this publication we report the first case in Paraguay of a kidney with two renal arteries, grafted to the aorta and inferior vena cava within the abdominal cavity, on a 12 kilogram pediatric patient, evaluating the medical, anatomical and surgical conditions faced, as well as the treatment options instituted to successfully carry out this procedure.

Keywords : Pediatric kidney transplantation; low weight; abdominal cavity..
