 Increased fracture incidence and ectopic calcifications which are accompanied with mineral metabolic disorders are well seen in dialysis patients. The role of bone in chronic kidney disease patients including dialysis has been investigated in clinical findings and experimental examinations. The abnormalities of osteocyte function have been pointed to as an active inducer of pathology of a deregulated endocrine organ.
