It may not be a great idea to take supplemental calcium for warfarin patients as you don’t want to boost the calcium levels too high and make any accelerated arterial calcification problems even worse. It is arguably safer to increase your dosage of vitamin D3 and magnesium, both of which in conjuction with vitamin K help your body to maintain safe levels of calcium and to avoid osteoporosis and arterial calcification. Then after you have some experience with how these and the other supplements below work, you might considering adding small quantities of calcium supplements.

In fact, the anatomical studies have demonstrated that after the radicular medullary arteries enter the neuroforamen in the anterior aspect of exiting nerve root and dorsal root ganglion, they often travel a distance superiorly and laterally in the lateral epidural space to join the anterior spinal artery supplying the anterior two thirds of the spinal cord. Additionally, in about 63% of cases of cadaver studies, there is a posterior branch of the radicular medullary artery going to the dorsal aspect of the cauda equina. It is conceivable that the epidural needle in the interlaminar lumbar epidural steroid injection will very likely encounter the radicular medullar artery in the lateral aspect of the epidural space or midline posterior epidural space.
