It is now widely believed to be an active process that involves four key events: 1) the trans-differentiation of Vascular Smooth Muscle Cells (VSMCs) into osteoblast-like cells, 2) the release of matrix vesicles, 3) the loss of calcification
inhibitors, and 4) the degradation of the extracellular matrix .
