Children’s has graft survival rates that are higher than the national average for 30 days and three years after transplant.
What does this data mean?
The graph shows the survival rates of the graft (a transplanted organ, such as a liver) 30 days, one year and three years after the transplant. Our graft survival rates are better than the national average for 30 days and three years after transplant.
Why are graft survival rates important?
High graft survival rates mean that the transplanted organ is doing well in the child. If a graft fails, that means the child will need another transplant. Our hopes are that the transplanted organ survives for many, many years.
How does Children’s make sure we are giving high-quality care?
