Background Posttransplant dyslipidemia is a common condition in renal transplantation recipients (RTR) and is related to poor cardiac outcomes. We aimed to demonstrate the value of non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (non-HDL-C) in predicting long-term major cardiovascular and cerebrovascular events (MACCE) in RTR with dyslipidemia.
