Kidney Transplantation and Hypertension

About this Research Topic

Hypertension is a well-known cardiovascular risk factor. Additionally uncontrolled hypertension is a major factor in death-censored graft failure. Despite being frequently present in kidney transplant patients it is still neglected in regular clinical work. The pathogenesis of post-transplant hypertension is multifactorial and various factors are included like pre-transplant hypertension, donor hypertension, recipient's native kidneys, obesity status, salt intake as well as graft dysfunction, recurrent disease and immunosuppressive drug protocols. Due to high prevalence of masked and white coat hypertension diagnosis should be confirmed using 24-h ambulatory blood pressure monitoring which also seems to be mandatory in long-term care. There is scarce information on optimal anti-hypertensive drug combination as well as on characteristics of resistant hypertension among kidney transplant recipients.

The purpose of this Research Topic is to collect recent data and information alerting physicians and scientists on this important unanswered issue in nephrology.


Keywords: Kidney transplantation, Hypertension, Blood pressure, Post-transplant Hypertension
