Emergency surgery represents an independent risk factor for death and postoperative complications. The aim of this study was to investigate the literature data regarding outcome of daytime or nighttime renal transplantation surgery. Relevant papers, focused on renal transplantation surgery, time of the day, and complications, were searched across the PubMed database. We used the following search terms: "renal", "transplantation", "surgery", "daytime", "nighttime", and "outcome". A total of five papers, including 6,991 adult patients were evaluated. All patients received renal transplantation from deceased donor. Daytime or nighttime surgery do not seem to negatively impact on graft survival in renal transplantation. However, two out five studies reported higher odds of complications after nighttime operation. Since it is not possible to predict the availability of a deceased donor, nighttime surgery remains a valid option when necessary, maybe deserving a higher level of caution to reduce or avoid complications.
