Renal transplantation is the choice of treatment for end-stage renal disease. In India, there are 3.25 renal transplantations done per million population from live and deceased donors. The number of people with hypertension (HTN) is expected to double from year 2000 to 2025, thus, making India the reservoir of chronic kidney diseases (CKD) out of which many will require renal transplantation. Data suggests that about 1, 50, 000 people in India are waiting for renal transplantation. But, it has also been seen in many researches that cardiovascular morbidity and mortality remains high even after renal transplantation surgery. In some studies it has been noted that rehabilitation in CKD patients reduce the risk of mortality and morbidity. So, if physiotherapy can improve mortality and morbidity in CKD cases, we expect it to show improvement in Post renal transplant cases too. Therefore, we thought of studying the effects of physiotherapy in post renal transplant cases and to see if regular physiotherapy affects mortality and morbidity. The objective of this study would be to review the literature available on post renal transplant physiotherapy care in different countries and check its effect on mortality and morbidity.
