Does calcium intake affect the Mitroflow Aortic Pericardial Heart Valve?

0

There is concern still being studied that ingestion of calcium phosphate, with or without vitamin D, may affect calcium metabolism in some circumstances. Such supplements may increase the risk of calcium deposition in the walls of blood vessels and probably in the leaflets of implanted biological or bioprosthetic heart valves. Reduced kidney function may further increase the deposit of calcium in valve leaflets. Medical advice must be sought if oral mineral or vitamin D supplements are considered.
