Abstract

Over the last 30 years there have been improvements in our understanding of bone and vascular calcification in kidney disease patients. This has led to the development of new therapeutic strategies that allow more effective control of parathyroid hormone, less positive calcium balance, improved bone remodeling, and less vascular calcification. These changes in our knowledge and available treatments will be discussed.
