Introduction: Erectile dysfunction (ED), defined as an inability to obtain or maintain an erection adequate for satisfactory sexual function, is present in up to 50–80% of patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) (1). The rate of erectile dysfunction (ED) in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) was shown to be 75%, whereas it decreased to 59% in kidney transplantation recipients (KTRs). Materials and Methods: A 264 Renal Transplant Patient is included in this study. Both male and female patient included in this study. The International Index of Erectile Function questionnaire – 5 (IIEF-5) (SHIM) Scoring systems is used. Results: Total 264 patients are included in the study.34 patients not responded. According to SHIM score 4 patients have sever erectile dysfunction, 21 patient have moderate erectile dysfunction, 78 patients have mild to moderate erectile dysfunction, 104 patients have mild erectile dysfunction and 23 patients have no erectile dysfunction. After 1 year of renal transplant, according to SHIM score 3 patients have sever erectile dysfunction,14 patient have moderate erectile dysfunction, 47 patients have mild to moderate erectile dysfunction, 67 patients have mild erectile dysfunction and 99 patients have no erectile dysfunction. Conclusion: IIEF-5 is an effective means to establish and diagnose the erectile dysfunction. Advance age, prolonged dialysis, diabetes mellitus and smoking were important risk factors for erectile dysfunction. The incidence of ED in patients with ERSD and KTRs is quite high, and its management is particularly difficult due to many interfering factors.
