Transitional stages in vascular calcification recapitulate embryonic endochondral ossification, including an acellular matrix (matrix), amorphous mineralized matrix (calcified matrix), remodeling (osteoid), and following neovascularization of adventitial Vv vessels, complete bone tissue (bone mineralization).
