Abstract

There has been an increasing interest in sleep problems of patients after organ transplantation. Despite the high prevalence of sleep disorders and the potential impact on both health-related quality of life and on morbidity and mortality, there is still a paucity of published data in the transplanted population. We aim to review here the few studies that address these issues in the kidney-transplanted population.
