Bone is a complicated tissue composed of cells, collagenous matrix, and inorganic elements. In patients with renal failure, different types of metabolic bone diseases develop as a result of parathyroid disorders and vitamin D metabolism. The aim of this study was to evaluation the effect of kidney transplantation on arterial stiffness before and after kidney transplantation. Methods and Materials: In a cross-sectional and descriptive-analytical study, which was conducted in Nephrology department of Tabriz University of Medical Sciences on patients with kidney transplantation, the effect of kidney transplantation on arterial stiffness before and after kidney transplantation was evaluated. Results: 19 patients were male and 11 patients were female. The mean age of male and female patients was 37.8412.04 years and 38.3612.04 years, respectively (P=0.927). The mean initial ABI of patients was 1.280.24. The mean ABI of patients after six months was 1.070.16. A significant decrease was observed in the ABI level of patients as compared to the initial ABI level six months later (P<0.001). Conclusion: Significant liner correlation was found between initial ABI level and ABI level at six months after kidney transplantation (r=0.765, P<0.001).
