Core Tip The last 2 decades witnessed the failure of all intervention studies targeting different risk factors of vascular calcification in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients on regular hemodialysis. The main aim of all these studies was to decrease cardiovascular morbidity and mortality among such patients. These disappointing results criticized the value of such interventions in clinical practice. On the other hand, when similar trials were run on patients at an earlier stage of CKD, most of these trials showed a significant impact on patient survival and/or cardiovascular morbidity. Such discrepancy indicates the value of timing of interference. We are trying in this review to develop the ideal strategy that would optimize the management of CKD patients to avoid the devastating vascular calcification, highlighting the value of different medicines used in this plan. Meanwhile we are showing the update in guidelines concerned with this issue.
