Calciphylaxis is a rare condition characterized by calcification or the aggregation of calcium in a patient’s blood vessels and the development of thrombosis. This can lead to the death of cells in a patient’s skin and fatty tissues, thereby causing death. Diagnosis of calciphylaxis is symptoms-based and various tests such as skin biopsy, blood tests, and imaging studies confirm the condition. There is no specific treatment available for calciphylaxis. Healthcare professionals often focus on balancing the minerals in the body such as calcium and phosphate that may aid in treatment of the disease. This can be achieved by changing dialysis regimes, medications, or considering surgery for parathyroid glands. Major surgical treatments such as parathyroidectomy are mostly recommended for patients with known primary hyperparathyroidism. However, surgical debridement to remove necrotic tissue and healing of healthy tissue is more widely used, however, its efficacy is debated. Doctors also focus on pain control, good nutrition, and excellent ulcer care in case the skin has broken down. Wound management therapies for calciphylaxis include, nonsurgical wound cleansing and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT). HBOT can be considered as a second line of treatment incase wounds do not improve. Researchers and key players in the market are focused on finding efficient treatment for calciphylaxis. According to the Journal of the American Society of Nephrology 2017 study, Vitamin K deficiency can have a role in development of calciphylaxis. Moreover, according a study published in 2017 by BioMed Central Nephology Journal, four week supplementation of Vitamin K2 can significantly improve vascular calcification.
