      Long-term renal transplant survivors display high incidences of hypogonadism, neoplasms, erectile dysfunction, and metabolic syndrome. Although the urologist has a major role in the kidney transplantation surgery and treatment of the graft-related surgical complications, the follow-up of these patients is essentially focused on kidney function and the immunosuppressive regimen. We sought to evaluate the role of a nephrourologic follow-up for kidney transplant recipients.
