[Pregnancies after kidney transplant: What are the consequences for the cognitive development of children?]

Résumé : Thanks to medical progress in the field of kidney transplantation, the quality of life of women suffering from kidney failure has greatly improved in recent years. As a result, their fertility has increased significantly and pregnancies are now more frequent and safer. Kidney transplantation requires constant immunosuppressive treatment during pregnancy. These products can cross the placental barrier and their prescription is therefore subject to rigorous medical monitoring. There are many environmental factors that can affect the development of the child during pregnancy and affect its subsequent cognitive development. The possible impact of these immunosuppressive treatments on the medium- and long-term intellectual development of the children concerned is as yet little documented. Even if the available data are reassuring, the methodologies used in this work nevertheless raise questions and legitimize the development of complementary research. The aim of this review is to propose a synthesis of existing data in this field and to open up avenues for future research.
