Description of intervention(s) / exposure
Twenty patients undergoing kidney transplantation will be included in the study. Data regarding preoperative variables, intraoperative and postoperative variables (delayed graft function, rejection), are prospectively collected. Patients will be followed up for 30 days
A non-invasive device (called Sidestream Dark Field imaging), that allow for clinical observation of the microcirculation will be used 30 minutes after kidney reperfusion.
It is hand-held probe with a sterile extension for direct contact with renal parenchyma. The tissue to be acquired in this study will be obtained from surgical specimens taken from consented participants having renal transplant.

Summary
Brief summary
Twenty patients undergoing kidney transplant will be included in the study. Data regarding preoperative variables, intraoperative and postoperative variables are prospectively collected.
A non-invasive device (called Sidestream Dark Field imaging), that allow for clinical observation of the microcirculation will be used.
It is hand-held probe with a sterile extension for direct contact with renal parenchyma.
kidney biopsies are performed to assess Immunohystochemical intensity of ET-1 and other markers. The tissue to be acquired in this study will be obtained from surgical specimens taken from consented participants having kidney transplant.
