Endstage renal disease patients will have either option of renal transplant or dialysis. Although dialysis is an effective form of renalreplacement therapy but it also have long term side effects. Pulmonary hypertension is one of them.Objective: To find frequency of pulmonary hypertension among end stage renal disease patients on hemodialysis in our populationMaterial and Methods: In this study a total of 163 patients were included, using 18.8% prevalence of pulmonary hypertension inend stage renal disease patients on hemodialysis, with 95% confidence interval and 6% margin of error, using WHO software. Moreover non-probability consecutive sampling technique was used for sample collection.Results: Our study shows that mean age was 52 years with SD ± 8.21. Fifty five percent patients were male and 73(45%) patientswere female. Forty eight percent patients had pulmonary hypertension.Conclusion: Our study concludes that the incidence of pulmonary hypertension was found to be one of the major contributingfactor among end stage renal disease patients on hemodialysis in our population.
