Vascular calcification occurs during aging in the general population and is increased in the intima by atherosclerosis and in the media by diabetes type 2. In both intima and media, calcification may lead to the formation of a tissue very similar if not identical to bone, with bone cells and bone marrow. Since vascular calcification is associated with cardiovascular complications, a better understanding of the inducing mechanisms could lead to the development of new therapeutic strategies.
