Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a worldwide health problem affecting 10% of the population. Its prevalence has been increasing due to factors related to lifestyle and population aging. Objective. To analyze the perception of renal transplant recipients on their quality of life, and to evaluate the factors that influence post renal transplant quality of life. Methodology. For this purpose, a bibliographic study was carried out considering sources of academic databases such as PubMed, Scopus, Web of Science, among others. The search descriptors used were "renal transplant", "quality of life", "patient perception", "post-transplant results". In addition, the search was extended to specialized journals, theses, books and conferences related to the subject. Inclusion criteria included original studies, systematic reviews, meta-analysis, publications in the last 10 years, etc. Unrelated studies, opinion articles, publications in non-accessible languages were considered as exclusion criteria. As for the information extraction process, the registration matrix and the techniques of observation and documentary analysis were used, the matrix was made up of author(s), year of publication, country of origin, objectives of the study, methodology used, variables analyzed, main results, and relevant conclusions. Conclusion. It is essential to recognize that post-renal transplant quality of life is a subjective experience that varies significantly among patients and is influenced by a wide range of factors, ranging from the management of physical symptoms to the management of psychological and social challenges.
