The clinical features of the Metabolic Syndrome (MS) as risk factors for transplantation have been cited separately and extensively in the transplant literature. Examples are diabetes , obesity , and Non-Alcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH) .

The most important clinical sequel of the MS is coronary vascular disease.
