Secondary hyperparathyroidism (SHPT) and calcium and phosphorus metabolism disorder are important complications in haemodialysis patients. Parathyroidectomy (PTX) may prevent or delay the progress of vascular calcification in haemodialysis patients.

Cross-linked chitosan iron (III) is a chitin-derived polymer with a chelating effect on phosphorus, but it is untested in vascular calcification. We evaluated this compound's ability to reduce hyperph...
Vascular calcification is common in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). In addition to traditional cardiovascular risk factors, ESRD patients also have a number of nontraditional cardiovascu...
Metastatic pulmonary calcification (MPC) was seen in 79% of patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) during autopsy. However, it is not commonly diagnosed in vivo. Its pathogenesis is not fully un...
The idiopathic basal ganglia calcification (Fahr syndrome) may occur due to senility. Fetuin-A is a negative acute phase reactant which inhibits calcium-phosphorus precipitation and vascular calcifica...
Idiopathic basal ganglia calcification (IBGC), also called Fahr's disease or recently primary familial brain calcification (PFBC), is characterized by abnormal deposits of minerals including calcium m...
Arterial calcification is an independent predictor of coronary events associated with a 3-4 fold increased risk of cardiovascular events. Currently, no effective intervention exists to red...
To test the hypothesis that total parathyroidectomy retards cardiovascular calcification, reduces cardiac hypertrophy and arterial stiffening in end-stage renal disease patients on mainten...
Evaluation of the calcifying effect of phosphorus on vascular smooth muscle and detect the association between serum phosphorus and valvular and vascular calcification in end stage renal d...
End-stage renal disease (ESRD) is a state of increased arterial stiffness of extensive vessel calcifications, compared with the non-renal population. Both arterial stiffness and arterial c...
"Chronic Kidney Disease-Mineral and Bone Disorder " is a systemic disorder of mineral and bone metabolism, due to chronic kidney disease that is manifested by either one or a combination o...
Thickening and loss of elasticity of the walls of medium and large muscular ARTERIES with lesions in the innermost layer of the artery (ARTERIAL INTIMA). This disease process of atherogenesis includes the retention of cholesterol-rich LIPOPROTEINS and their binding to PROTEOGLYCANS in the arterial intima, generation of proinflammatory molecules that recruit MACROPHAGES to the subendothelial space, formation of FOAM CELLS, and eventual calcification of the arterial wall. These arterial plaques (atheromas) contain CARBOHYDRATES; BLOOD; and CALCIUM.
A diphosphonate which affects calcium metabolism. It inhibits bone resorption and soft tissue calcification.
A diphosphonate which affects calcium metabolism. It inhibits ectopic calcification and slows down bone resorption and bone turnover.
Disorders in the processing of phosphorus in the body: its absorption, transport, storage, and utilization.
Deposition of calcium into the blood vessel structures. Excessive calcification of the vessels are associated with ATHEROSCLEROTIC PLAQUES formation particularly after MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION (see MONCKEBERG MEDIAL CALCIFIC SCLEROSIS) and chronic kidney diseases which in turn increase VASCULAR STIFFNESS.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
In medicine, dialysis is a process for removing waste and excess water from the blood, and is primarily used to provide an artificial replacement for lost kidney function in people with renal failure. Dialysis may be used for those with an acute disturba...
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
