Unlike in gout, there is currently no effective treatment that reduces or removes calcium pyrophosphate crystals from a joint.

Nagashima, "Tumourous deposition of calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate crystals in the wrist.
There are several known causes of crystal deposition diseases involving the soft tissues, bones and joints, specifically gout, calcium pyrophosphate dehydrate, and hydroxyapatite depositional diseases.
Gout is caused by monosodium urate (MSU) crystals, while pseudogout is inflammation caused by calcium pyrophosphate (CPP) crystals, sometimes referred to as calcium pyrophosphate disease (CPPD) (15,16).
Secondary OA may affect any joint, and causes include trauma, calcium pyrophosphate disease, rheumatoid arthritis and neuropathic arthropathy.
These opaque crystal deposits are composed of calcium pyrophosphate dehydrate, reflecting an association with pseudo-gout.
Clinically significant crystals include calcium pyrophosphate crystals that are seen in pseudogout and monosodium urate crystals that are seen in gout.
They are microscopic accumulations of minerals such as urate, calcium or calcium pyrophosphate.
The crystal arthropathies, gout and calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate deposition disease, are caused by deposition of monosodium urate (MSU) or calcium pyrophosphate dehydrate (CPPD) crystals, respectively.
Calcium pyrophosphate crystals of pseudogout are rhomboid-shaped rather than needle-shaped.
Pseudogout results from deposition of calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate crystals, which are rhomboid-shaped, blunt-ended crystals with weak birefringence upon polarization.
Pseudogout is caused by deposits of calcium pyrophosphate crystals in joint tissues.
Pseudogout, also a crystal-induced arthritis, is a condition with similar symptoms that results from deposits of calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate crystals in the joints.
Other risk factors of OA are major knee injuries and chondrocalcinosis the buildup of calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate crystals in the joints.
