Renal transplantation

The Renal Transplantation section considers manuscripts describing all aspects of renal transplantation, including pre-transplantation care and organization, and pre- and post-operative outcomes. Research describing large epidemiological studies should be directed to the dedicated Epidemiology and Health Outcomes section and case reports to the dedicated Case Reports section.
