The renal transplantation is nowadays the reference treatment of ESRD. Living donor kidney transplantation is less often performed in France than in other countries. Nevertheless, numerous French and international surveys have evidenced that it provides the recipients a longer life expectancy and a better quality of life. Donors themselves, what do they become? How are they? For the first time in France, a survey has been implemented to investigate the quality of life of living kidney donor to one of their close relations. This study has been undertaken by the Agency of the biomedecine and the service Clinical Epidemiology and Evaluation (EEC), of the University teaching hospital of Nancy. The main objective was to describe the quality of life of the living donors having given a kidney for more than a year and less than 5 years. The secondary objective was to contribute to the knowledge of the main factors associated to the living kidney donor quality of life, one year after the donation. Participants had to be living in France at the time of the donation which had taken place between June 30(th), 2005 and March 1(st), 2009. A folder gathering various self-administrated questionnaires was sent to the place of residence of the donor between March and April, 2010. These data were completed by medical data collected near the transplantation centres by the Agency of biomedecine within the framework of the register CRISTAL. They included the characteristics of the donation and of the donor at the very time of the donation, 3 months after the donation and at the last annual assessment. Three living donors in four, that is 501 persons, agreed to fully participate. They constituted a representative national sample of all the living donors of this period. The non-participants were younger (4.5 years on average) and had a less adequate annual follow-up. The women were more represented (61 %) than men. The median age was 53 years. More of 2/3 were employed at the time of the survey. The three main categories of donors were ascendants (36 %), collateral (33 %) and spouses (26%). The donation decision was taken without hesitation (94 %) and at an early stage of the evolution of the recipient renal disease (64 %). The delivered information was considered globally satisfactory except for the painful consequences and for the scar. The living donors were, long after their donation, in an excellent physical health state according to the SF36 summarized physical score and this especially when they were old as compared to the same age and sex general population. This phenomenon highlights the drastic selection of the potential donors. The only factor influencing the level of long term physical health was the surgical technique: the 261 subjects having undergone a coelioscopy had less often presented post-operative pain (OR=0.5; 0.3-0.8; P
