Myocardial calcification is classified as either dystrophic or metastatic. Metastatic calcification is commonly encountered in chronic renal failure patients, where changes in calcium and phosphate metabolisms are thought to lead to metastatic calcification in various organs including cardiovascular system. Dystrophic calcification is not common and reported after myocardial infarction, trauma, surgery and myocarditis. Sepsis itself causes cardiomyopathy described as acute left ventricular wall dilation and decrease in ejection fraction.
