Abstract

The results of these in vivo experiments show that bovine pericardium can undergo calcification without direct contact with tissue. It is clear that the direct interaction of cells with implanted samples both promotes and accelerates the process of calcification. Moreover, dietary calcium supplements, calcium chloride and vitamin D can intensify the rate and extent of this process.
