To examine whether an accumulation of Ca in the tissues was accompanied by an increase of Mg, the authors investigated the relationships between Ca and Mg contents in the common iliac arteries, aortic valves, xiphoid processes, costal cartilages, posterior longitudinal ligaments, trigeminal nerves, and ribs by inductively coupled plasma-atomic emission spectrometry After the ordinary dissections by medical students were finished, the common iliac arteries, aortic valves, xiphoid processes, bilateral the fourth costal cartilages, posterior longitudinal ligaments between the fourth and fifth cervical vertebrae, trigeminal nerves, and bilateral the sixth ribs were resected from the subjects and elements were determined. It was found that there were extremely significant direct correlations between Ca and Mg contents in all of the common iliac arteries, aortic valves, costal cartilages, posterior longitudinal ligaments, and trigeminal nerves, whereas there were significant direct correlations in both the xiphoid processes and ribs. As for the tissues containing Ca higher than 20 mg/g, the average mass ratios of Mg/Ca were similar among the seven tissues. As Ca increased in all of the common iliac arteries, aortic valves, xiphoid processes, costal cartilages, posterior longitudinal ligaments, trigeminal nerves, and ribs, Mg increased simultaneously in the seven tissues.
