A simple method is described for gross visualization of calcific deposits in large segments of the arterial tree. It is based on the Von Kossa's reaction for calcium and provides a new insight into calcification patterns of the inner elastic membrane. The method is also useful for assessment of other forms of calcific deposits, i.e., Mönckeberg's sclerosis and calcifications of atherosclerotic plaques.

In this study, we examined the association of chondrocyte-specific marker...
