The article offers information on the effects of lanthanum carbonate to a 54-year-old woman who was treated with percutaneous transluminal angioplasty. It states that lanthanum carbonate accounts for the severe atherosclerotic calcifications in the abdominal aorta and iliac arteries as shown in the results of the computed tomography of the abdomen and the pelvis. The authors advice that lanthanum carbonate is a radiopaque material and should be discontinued several days before abdominal imaging.

    Recently, well performing diagnostic criteria for analgesic nephropathy in end-stage renal failure (ESRF) patients were defined by the demonstration of a bilateral decrease in renal volume combined with either bumpy contours or papillary calcifications. In this study, the diagnostic value of...
