The results of morphological studies on the structure of mineral deposits in the walls of major arteries in atherosclerosis are presented. Calcium deposits looking like petrificates and microgranular deposits were found. The petrificates consisted of microgranular, microcrystalline and macrocrystalline deposits of calcium salts. In the arterial wall, the crystals consisted of calcium phosphate and calcium carbonate. The relationship between the destruction of elastic fibers and elastic membranes and calcification of the vascular wall was confirmed.
