Abstract [en]

The pathogenesis of coronary artery calcification and its role in atherogenesis has not been completely understood but is a new focus of interest in experimental and clinical research. Various bioactive substances, including hormones, have been implicated in the process of arterial calcification. This review considers the relationship between coronary artery calcification and hormones. These hormones may become therapeutic targets for the prevention of arterial calcification.
