Renal transplantation is the best treatment of terminal renal insufficiency. This therapy is relatively well secured, thanks to the advent of new immunosuppressive agents. These new drugs have decreased the occurrence of acute rejection, but they are purveyors of multiple side effects such as infections, cancers, diabetes de novo after organs transplantation. In order to prevent further morbidity and mortality related to cardiovasculaar disorders in kidney transplanted patients, these risk factors should be identified prior to undertake kidney transplantation.
