Investigation data presented revealed association between pulmonary hypertension and the stage of chronic renal disease. It was shown that development of pulmonary hypertension was noted at the earliest stages of the chronic renal disease (when glomerular filtration rate decreased to < 80 ml/min) and the rate of hypertension development increased with the progression of the disease.
