Background: Cardiovascular complication is the commonest cause of death in patients of hemodialysis. We prospectively studied 40 patients on chronic hemodialysis at UKC Tuzla. The following echo parameters were obtained by using the m-mode and two-dimensional echocardiography: IVS, LVPW, LVEDD, LVESD, EF, FS. Echocardiography demonstrated: left ventricular hypertrophy in 65%, left ventricular dilatation and systolic dysfunction in 22,5% patients. Normal echo findings had 12,5% patients.

Conclusion: Hemodialysis is a stressful hemodynamic procedure which requires a good cardiovascular compliance. Echocardiographic assessment should be obtained in every patient before the commencement of dialysis.
