The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) provides recommendations regarding sports in the child with a solitary kidney. They suggest that no restrictions be placed on non-contact sports, and that clinical judgement be used regarding placing any restrictions on contact/collision and non-contact sports.
These Canadian guidelines have been developed in accordance with the recommendations of the AAP, tailoring them to the young, sports-naïve child.
