Impact of serum calcium and phosphate on coronary atherosclerosis detected by cardiac computed tomography
European Heart Journal, 07/16/2012
Shin S et al. – Elevated serum levels of Ca, P, and Ca–P product (CPP) are significantly associated with the presence of calcified coronary atherosclerotic plaque. It is unclear if there is a causal relationship. This relationship is thought to contribute to vascular calcification, but is less closely associated with NCP.
