Vitamin K-dependent calcium-binding protein synthesized by OSTEOBLASTS and found primarily in BONES. Serum osteocalcin measurements provide a noninvasive specific marker of bone metabolism. The protein contains three residues of the amino acid gamma-carboxyglutamic acid (Gla), which, in the presence of CALCIUM, promotes binding to HYDROXYAPATITE and subsequent accumulation in BONE MATRIX.
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.
Macromolecular organic compounds that contain carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, and usually, sulfur. These macromolecules (proteins) form an intricate meshwork in which cells are embedded to construct tissues. Variations in the relative types of macromolecules and their organization determine the type of extracellular matrix, each adapted to the functional requirements of the tissue. The two main classes of macromolecules that form the extracellular matrix are: glycosaminoglycans, usually linked to proteins (proteoglycans), and fibrous proteins (e.g., COLLAGEN; ELASTIN; FIBRONECTINS; and LAMININ).

Calcium use increases risk of calciphylaxis: a case-control study. (1/61)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the risk factors for the development of calciphylaxis in renal failure, a poorly understood and often fatal condition characterized by calcium deposition in tissues. DESIGN: Retrospective case-control study. SETTING: University hospital peritoneal dialysis center. PATIENTS: Eight continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) patients with calciphylaxis were identified in a 3-year period. We matched up to five controls for dialysis modality and length of time on dialysis with each case. STATISTICS: Multivariate conditional logistic regression analysis for matched case-controls. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Laboratory data and demographics were collected as well as cumulative calcium and vitamin D ingestion over the year prior to disease onset. RESULTS: All the patients were female, versus only 38% (14/37) of controls (p < 0.0001). While not statistically significant, a majority of the patients were diabetic [62.5% (5/8) vs 32% (12/37)]. Peak and average levels of serum calcium, phosphate, calcium x phosphate product, parathyroid hormone (PTH), albumin, iron, total iron-binding capacity (TIBC), and ferritin were not significantly different in cases compared with controls. The use of calcitriol alone or with calcium carbonate was not found to be a significant risk factor for the development of calciphylaxis. In a multivariate analysis, iron intake seemed to be protective, contrary to previous reports, while the use of calcium carbonate was associated with a strong trend to increased risk of calciphylaxis development (odds ratio = 1.029/g and 1.011/g calcium ingested per month, at 1 and 2 - 3 months prior to calciphylaxis development; p = 0.0556 and 0.0565, respectively). CONCLUSION: These data, although limited by the small numbers of index cases, suggest that calcium ingestion is a risk factor for calciphylaxis. The increased use of calcium salts as a phosphate binder in recent years might explain the apparent increased incidence of calciphylaxis in our and other centers. The preponderance of female diabetics among cases reported elsewhere was confirmed in our study.  (+info)

Cutaneous calciphylaxis. An underrecognized clinicopathologic entity. (2/61)

Calciphylaxis (CPX), an uncommon syndrome characterized, in part, by progressive cutaneous vascular calcification, is seen principally in the setting of renal failure-associated hyperparathyroidism and is difficult to distinguish histologically from other microvasculopathies. We assessed histologic specimens from 13 cases of clinicopathologically classic CPX of the skin and reviewed documented histologic findings in the literature. Our series included 7 "early" and 6 "late" lesions (absence or presence of tissue necrosis, respectively). Histologically, early lesions were subtle and almost inapparent microscopically. Late lesions were easier to recognize because of obvious epidermal ulceration, dermal necrosis, and easily seen mural vascular calcification. The most common finding in both groups was acute and chronic calcifying septal panniculitis. Endovascular fibroblastic proliferation was more common in advanced lesions. Necrosis of dermal collagen was identified in only a few early lesions. Frank luminal vascular thrombosis was infrequent in both groups. The cited histologic findings largely were mirrored by those in the literature. Although they are relatively nonspecific when considered in isolation, the cited histopathologic features of cutaneous CPX allow for the diagnosis of this potentially lethal disorder when they are seen in combination with one another, particularly if detailed clinical data also are available.  (+info)

Risk factors and mortality associated with calciphylaxis in end-stage renal disease. (3/61)

BACKGROUND: We conducted a case control study to determine risk factors and mortality associated with calciphylaxis in end-stage renal disease. METHODS: Cases of calciphylaxis diagnosed between December 1989 and January 2000 were identified. Three controls were identified for each hemodialysis patient, with calciphylaxis matched to the date of initiation of hemodialysis. Laboratory data and medication doses were recorded during the 12 months prior to the date of diagnosis and at the time of diagnosis of calciphylaxis. Conditional logistic regression was used to identify risk factors for calciphylaxis. Cox proportional hazards models were used to estimate the risk of death associated with calciphylaxis. RESULTS: Nineteen cases and 54 controls were identified. Eighteen patients were hemodialysis patients, and one had a functioning renal allograft. Diagnosis was confirmed by skin biopsy in 16 cases. Women were at a sixfold higher risk of developing calciphylaxis (OR = 6.04, 95% CI 1.62 to 22.6, P = 0.007). There was a 21% lower risk of calciphylaxis associated with each 0.1 g/dL increase in the mean serum albumin during the year prior to diagnosis and at the time of diagnosis of calciphylaxis (OR = 0.79, 95% CI, 0.64 to 0.99, P = 0.037, and OR = 0.80, 95% CI, 0.67 to 0.96, P = 0.019, respectively). There was a 3.51-fold increase in the risk of calciphylaxis associated with each mg/dL increase in the mean serum phosphate during the year prior to diagnosis (95% CI, 0.99 to 12.5, P = 0.052). At the time of diagnosis of calciphylaxis, for each 10 IU/L increment in alkaline phosphatase, the risk of calciphylaxis increased by 19% (OR = 1.19, 95% CI, 1.00 to 1.40, P = 0.045). Body mass index, diabetes, blood pressure, aluminum, and higher dosage of erythropoietin and iron dextran were not independent predictors of calciphylaxis. Calciphylaxis independently increased the risk of death by eightfold (OR = 8.58, 95% CI, 3.26 to 22.6, P < 0.001). CONCLUSIONS: Female gender, hyperphosphatemia, high alkaline phosphatase, and low serum albumin are risk factors for calciphylaxis. Calciphylaxis is associated with a very high mortality.  (+info)

Calciphylaxis. (4/61)

The phenomenon of calciphylaxis is rare, but potentially fatal. It has been recognised for a long time in patients with chronic renal failure with secondary hyperparathyroidism. Disturbed calcium and phosphate metabolism can result in painful necrosis of skin, subcutaneous tissue and acral gangrene. Appearance of the lesions is distinctive but the pathogenesis remains uncertain. The beneficial effects of parathyroidectomy are controversial. However, correction of hyperphosphataemia or occasionally hypercalcaemia is imperative. Fulminant sepsis as a consequence of secondary infection of necrotic and gangrenous tissue is a frequent cause of patient morbidity and mortality.  (+info)

Hyperbaric oxygen in the treatment of calciphylaxis: a case series. (5/61)

BACKGROUND: Calciphylaxis, also referred to as calcific uraemic arteriolopathy, is a syndrome associated with end-stage renal disease (ESRD), and causes necrotic skin ulcers, often leading to a fatal outcome. Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO(2)) therapy has been used to enhance wound healing, but its role in the treatment of calciphylaxis is unclear. METHODS: We undertook a retrospective study of patients on renal replacement therapy with biopsy-proven calciphylaxis who were treated with HBO(2) between March 1997 and February 2000. RESULTS: Five patients were treated with HBO(2): three patients were on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) and two were on chronic haemodialysis therapy. None of the patients had uncontrolled hyperparathyroidism and none underwent parathyroidectomy. The patients each received 25-35 treatments of HBO(2) at 2.5 atmospheres for 90 min per treatment. Two of these patients had complete resolution of extensive necrotic skin ulcers, with no adverse effects of HBO(2) therapy. Both had improvement in wound area transcutaneous oxygen pressure (P(tc)O(2)) with administration of 100% oxygen when measurements were taken at normobaric and hyperbaric pressures. In the other three patients receiving HBO(2), the skin lesions did not resolve. P(tc)O(2) was measured in two of these patients, neither of whom showed improvement with 100% oxygen administered at normobaric pressure. CONCLUSIONS: The data support a role for HBO(2) in the treatment of some patients with calciphylaxis, particularly as in the absence of uncontrolled secondary hyperparathyroidism there are few therapeutic options.  (+info)

Healing of skin necrosis and regression of anticardiolipin antibodies achieved by parathyroidectomy in a dialyzed woman with calcific uremic arteriolopathy. (6/61)

AIM: To present the impact of parathyroidectomy on the spontaneous healing of necrotic lesions of the skin of the lower leg and on anticardiolipin antibodies regression in a 68-year-old female dialyzed patient with hyperparathyroidism and calcific-uremic arteriolopathy (CUA). METHODS: After the occurrence of initial lesions of the lower leg skin, the intact parathyroid (iPTH) level, calcium (Ca) and phosphorus (P) product were measured, and on two occasions at 6-week intervals, the titer of anticardiolipin antibodies was determined, followed by a clinical monitoring of the progress of necrotic skin lesions. Two months after the occurrence of the skin lesions, the patient's right leg was amputated below the knee due to gangrene, and a histopathological analysis of the skin tissue sample of the amputated lower leg was made. After parathyroidectomy, iPTH, Ca x P product were measured, and on two occasions at 6 weeks' intervals, anticardiolipin antibodies titer was determined, followed by a clinical monitoring of lesions of the left lower leg skin. RESULTS: Before parathyroidectomy, iPTH level and Ca x P product were increased, as well as IgG anticardiolipin antibody titer measured on two occasions 6 weeks apart. The histopathological analysis of the skin tissue sample of the amputated right lower leg showed mural calcification of artery walls and thrombotic occlusions of small arteries, arterioles, and dermal capillaries, in addition to epidermolysis. A week after parathyroidectomy, iPTH level and Ca x P product were within normal range. Two measurements 6 weeks apart revealed no anticardiolipin antibodies. Eight weeks after parathyroidectomy, spontaneous healing of necrotic skin lesions of the left lower leg was observed. CONCLUSION: Regression of anticardiolipin antibodies, normalization of Ca x P product, and healing of the skin lesions after parathyroidectomy all pointed to the elevated PTH level as a crucial factor in the pathogenesis of CUA.  (+info)

Calciphylaxis in a patient with end-stage renal disease secondary to systemic lupus erythematosus associated with acral gangrene and mesenteric ischemia. (7/61)

A patient with end stage renal disease secondary to systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) ultimately required amputation of the four extremities and developed mesenteric ischemia. The patient presented with widespread medial calcification involving various small to medium sized arteries, although no noticeable secondary hyperparathyroidism was observed. We speculated that SLE associated with systemic vasculitis and uremic milieu over a number of years may represent the perfect preexisting condition for calcific arteriolopathy to occur following which several factors including chronic administration of corticosteroids, photosensitivity in lupus, and significant weight loss may have contributed to acral gangrene and mesenteric ischemia.  (+info)

Calciphylaxis is usually non-ulcerating: risk factors, outcome and therapy. (8/61)

BACKGROUND: Calciphylaxis, historically considered rare, seems to be increasing in frequency. In our single center, 36 new cases have accumulated in seven years. The majority of these cases were non-ulcerating, which we believe to be early disease, in contradistinction to the vast majority of published cases that presented with ulcers. METHODS: Prospective data were collected on all patients with calciphylaxis. As well, a case control study, with two controls per patient, was performed on patients presenting with non-ulcerating plaques. RESULTS: The incidence of calciphylaxis in dialysis patients increased with a rate of 4.5/100 patient-years in the past three years. Eighty percent of cases presented with non-ulcerating subcutaneous plaques in the calves, easily confused with cellulitis. In those patients presenting with plaques only, the mortality rate was 33% at six months. Once ulceration develops, the mortality rate increased to above 80%. Bone scan was positive in 97% of patients. Steroid therapy appeared to be beneficial in some patients. Peritoneal dialysis, female sex and diabetes were risk factors. In the case control study of patients presenting with plaques only, serum phosphate (OR 2.6; 95% CI 1.05 to 6.45, P = 0.038) and Ca x P product (OR 1.46; 95% CI 1.02 to 20, P = 0.038) predicted the disease, as did being on calcium salts + vitamin D (OR 4.05; 95% CI 1.14 to 14.5, P = 0.03). CONCLUSIONS: Calciphylaxis is no longer rare. It is usually nonulcerating and can be diagnosed clinically in all patients. These patients have a high mortality, especially once ulceration occurs. Calcium salts plus vitamin D, as well as serum Ca x P product and high serum P increase the chance of the diseases. Therefore, the disease may be preventable. Steroids may be of benefit to some patients.  (+info)

Calciphylaxis is a rare and devastating disease, affecting mostly patients with end-stage kidney disease, but also affecting patients with preserved kidney function. Due to the low prevalence of the disease, high quality evidence for the evaluation and management of calciphylaxis is lacking. Most of the current evidence and recommendations are based on small studies, case reports, and expert opinion. In an article published in the July issue of AJKD, Nigwekar et al thoroughly review the current literature on calciphylaxis and provide a summary of recommendations to evaluate and manage patients with calciphylaxis, developed by the Massachusetts General Hospitals Multi-Disciplinary Calciphylaxis Team.. Clinically, calciphylaxis presents with severe painful skin lesions that are frequently complicated by blistering and ulcerations. Histologically, it is characterized by vascular and soft tissue calcification, intimal hypertrophy, and microthrombosis of small vessels, which result in necrotizing, ...

Calciphylaxis is characterized by diffuse precipitation of tissue calcium, and is a rare fatal entity of calcific vasculopathy associated with tissue necrosis.1 Its description was first reported in skin, and the calciphylaxis of other organs has rarely been reported.3 Unlike metastatic calcification, calciphylaxis is accompanied by damage to ischemic and necrotic tissue.4,5 Metastatic calcification and calciphylaxis are metabolic disorders,3 for which the precise pathogenesis has not yet been determined. Multifactorial causes have been suggested: persistent or transient hyperphosphatemia, vitamin D intoxication, hypercalcemia, steroid therapy in renal transplant recipients, and deficiencies or functional abnormalities of proteins C and S, warfarin therapy, or secondary hyperparathyroidism.6-8 Hypoparathyroidism as well as hyperparathyroidism are rare causes of metastatic calcification.9 Other theories involving proinflammatory cytokines, including interleukin-6 and tumor necrosis factor α, ...
Calciphylaxis is an uncommon disease characterized by calcification of dermal vessels that determines skin necrosis. Calciphylaxis has been almost exclusively reported in association with renal failure and altered phosphor-calcium metabolism. Only a few cases have been described in hyperparathyroidism, malignancies, and, recently, cirrhosis. We report a patient that developed calciphylaxis related to end-stage alcoholic cirrhosis, without any alteration in the phosphocalcic and parathyroid hormone metabolisms. Possible contributing factors were repeated albumin infusions and low levels of protein C and S ...
However, there is some danger in biopsy: many of these patients have a difficult time with wound healing, and it would be preferable to have a non-invasive manner by which to support the diagnosis of calciphylaxis. A 2002 KI article by Fine and Zacharias provides evidence that a bone scan is fairly sensitive for this diagnosis and could be used in lieu of a biopsy. Their analysis indicated that 34 out of 36 patients with a diagnosis of calciphylaxis had an abnormal bone scan-most commonly reflected as showing increased uptake in the calves, typically in the areas of pain/ulceration (as shown on the left). Of note, this particular study does not really address how specific a bone scan is at excluding alternative causes of this type of dermopathy, but could still potentially be useful in the right clinical setting. Unfortunately, calciphylaxis still carries with it a very high mortality rate ...
Vascular calcification refers to the abnormal deposition of calcium phosphate salts in blood vessels, myocardium, and cardiac valves. Vascular calcification can be life-threatening, as in the case of generalized infantile arterial calcification, calcific uremic arteriolopathy, and calcific valve disease.1,2 In atherosclerotic lesions, calcification is mainly found in the intima of blood vessels as dispersed punctate or patchy crystals associated with the necrotic core of atheromas (intimal calcification) and has been shown to positively correlate to the atherosclerotic plaque burden and the increased risk of myocardial infarction.3 Calcium phosphate salts deposit also in the media of blood vessels, known as Monckebergs medial sclerosis (medial calcification), and is prevalent in aging and patients with chronic kidney disease and type 2 diabetes mellitus.2,4,5 Medial calcification in these patients can occur independently of intimal calcification and/or atherosclerotic lesions and features ...
My reaction to the diagnosis of calciphylaxis is Pavlovian - I automatically think about an end-stage renal insufficiency patient with an abysmal prognosis. Increasingly there are reports of nonuremic forms of the disease, where the prognosis may not be as bleak (*although clinically very significant).
In patients on warfarin treatment, warfarin withdrawal and switch to heparin use is urgently recommended, despite a lack of clear-cut prospective clinical evidence. However, the biological plausibility that vitamin K antagonism favours vascular calcification is relevant and vitamin K supplementation may be valuable. Basile et al. reported on successful hyperbaric oxygen therapy in a small number of calciphylaxis patients. This approach is based on the attempt to improve wound healing in ischemic tissues. In this study, affected areas were exposed to 100% oxygen at 2.5-atmospheres pressure in a closed chamber for 90 minutes per session in order to increase local oxygen pressure in the ulcerated and necrotic areas (number of session per patient ranged between 20 and 108). 8 out of 11 patients showed effective healing of ulcerations ...

Especially for investigator-initiated research at universities and academic institutions, Internet-based rare disease registries (RDR) are required that integrate electronic data capture (EDC) with automatic image analysis or manual image annotation. We propose a modular framework merging alpha-numerical and binary data capture. In concordance with the Office of Rare Diseases Research recommendations, a requirement analysis was performed based on several RDR databases currently hosted at Uniklinik RWTH Aachen, Germany. With respect to the study management tool that is already successfully operating at the Clinical Trial Center Aachen, the Google Web Toolkit was chosen with Hibernate and Gilead connecting a MySQL database management system. Image and signal data integration and processing is supported by Apache Commons FileUpload-Library and ImageJ-based Java code, respectively. As a proof of concept, the framework is instantiated to the German Calciphylaxis Registry. The framework is composed of ...

Rats were sensitized by mouth with dihydrotachysterol and subsequently challenged by a subcutaneous injection of ferric dextran. Mineralization at the injection site is barely detectable 17 hours after challenge. If, at this time, the challenged skin is transplanted onto a normal recipient, mineralization continues in the nonsensitized host. Sensitization is indispensable only for the initiation of the calciphylactic response and, once triggered, the mechanism for this type of mineralization is transferable.. ...
Hi All, last week I posted a question about the mix of Sodium Thiosulfate Plain Fixer to water to make a plain fixer. I had planned to use it, with the addition of sodium bisulfite in fix one, as a two step fix process. I mixed 16oz of the Sodium Thiosulfate to 2 liters of water at around 90. It really did not want to dissolve and eventually did dissolve but I ended up with a very thick liquid that had a greasy feel to it. I did not want to chance a print in it so I swapped back

Is this going to be okay? From what I understand, lots of babies can have this and turn out absolutely normal. The doctor told me everything was measuring properly and that the baby was actually measuring in at 20 weeks but that there were two calcium deposits in the heart? Calcium Deposit In The Fetus S Heart. The fetal heart rate (FHR) is usually faster as compared to the heart rate of an adult. First, I have a placenta previa (the doctor says there is a good chance this will change before delivery) and the second is a calcium deposit in the babys heart, which my doc says could be a sign of Downs Syndrome. Calcifications were mainly located in the liver (57%), but also in heart (13%), bowel (6%) and other tissues. The cause of EIF is unknown, but the condition is generally harmless. So this morning we had our 20 week ultrasound. for the most part is measuring good and most is fine. Q: Tests showed that the baby has calcium deposits in the heart at 20 weeks.

The controversy over HRT is set to be reignited as a study suggests women in their 50s who use one type of treatment have healthier arteries.. Experts are divided on its health effects after a large US investigation in 2002 turned accepted thinking about HRT on its head by indicating it can increase the risk of strokes and heart attacks.. Both arms of the Womens Health Initiative (WHI) study, involving more than 27,000 people, were immediately stopped three years early as experts argued over the importance of the findings.. The latest results published in The New England Journal of Medicine emerged from a substudy of the WHI focusing on younger postmenopausal women using oestrogen-only HRT.. It claims these women built up fewer calcium deposits in their arteries than women of the same age not undergoing the treatment.. Calcium in the arteries is considered an early warning sign of blocked blood vessels and heart disease.. Lead author Dr JoAnn Manson, chief of preventive medicine at the Brigham ...

Calcinosis, a serious complication of dermatomyositis, involves deposition of calcium (carbonate apatite) in soft tissue, and can result in negative impacts on quality of life and physical function. To date, there are no known effective therapies that are approved for the treatment of dermatomyositis-associated calcinosis, and there is no consensus within the medical community on the optimum treatment strategy for this often-debilitating condition.. A few reports in the literature describe treatment successes with a variety of therapeutics; however, these data are from anecdotal reports or case series and thus provide limited scientific evidence of effectiveness. Recently published reports as well as personal observations within our group have suggested that intravenous sodium thiosulfate treatment may benefit calcinosis patients. In order to gather more robust data on the utility of this medication in the treatment of calcinosis associated with adult and juvenile dermatomyositis, we propose to ...

Calcium deposits in veins - What are calcium deposits in the urine? Sometimes the level. Of calcium in the urine or blood is so high that it precipitates and forms deposits in the kidney called nephrocalcinosis. The is related to, but not the same as kidney stones. It can be caused by several genetic syndromes, hyperparathyroidism and vitamin D toxicity, certain meds, TB, renal tubular acidosis, etc. It is usually managed by treated the underlying condition.

This study sought to establish a chronic total occlusion (CTO) model with cell-mediated calcium deposits in rabbit femoral arteries. CTO is the most severe case in atherosclerosis and contains calcium deposits. Previous animal models of CTO do not mimic the gradual occlusion of arteries or have calcium in physiological form. In the present study we tested the strategy of placing tissue-engineering scaffolds preloaded with cells in arteries to develop a novel CTO model. Primary human osteoblasts (HOBs) were first cultured in vitro on polycaprolactone (PCL) scaffolds with 5 ng TGFβ1 loading for 28 days for precalcification. The HOB-PCL construct was then implanted into a rabbit femoral artery for an additional 3, 10 or 28 days. At the time of sacrifice, angiograms and gross histology of arteries were captured to examine the occlusion of arteries. Fluorescent staining of calcium and EDS detection of calcium were used to evaluate the presence and distribution of calcium inside arteries. Rabbit femoral
