Microvascular lesions like microaneurysm and haemorrhages which were found as highly associated with stroke as their OR were 3.83 and 3.21, respectively, and the OR between stroke and arteriole narrowing and venular network are 2.28 and 1.80 indicated the association of these abnormalities with stroke [16].
Hematoxylin and eosin-stained section of the liver biopsy shows preserved lobular architecture with patchy fibrosis within sinusoids and marked central venular fibrosis.
Arteriolar narrowing and venular widening were both less pronounced, whereas no such changes took place in the control group.
This is in accordance with former studies performed using fundus photography, which showed an association of arterial narrowing with a greater risk of infarcts and leukoaraiosis.[sup][32],[33] We also observed a relationship between venular dilation (both inner and outer diameter) and the severity of small infarcts and CMBs.
The intensity of capillaroscopic changes was expressed according to a previous classification [21] and ranged from 0 to 3, where: a score of 0 indicated no changes, 1--mild (25-50% morphologically changed capillaries without perivascular changes), 2--moderate (50%-75% morphologically changed loops with diminished loop density, increased visibility of the subpapillary venular plexus, and without extravasations), and 3--severe changes (more than 75% morphologically changed loops with the extended architectural derangement of the microvascular network, heterogeneous features of angiogenesis, extravasations into perivascular tissue and extensive visible venous plexus).

It was shown to inhibit corneal angiogenesis under chemical growth factor stimulation in rabbits [60] and improve leucocyte adherence and emigration to venular endothelium, characteristic of acute inflammation, in cat jejuni [61].

Venular infiltration and hepatic parenchymal invasion, in addition to centrilobular degeneration, was observed during treatment with ketoconazole.
Positive AQP-1 immunoreaction depicted in cell membrane of venular endothelial cells and AQP-1 immunocytochemistry showed diffuse staining of basal cells, epithelial cells and stroma without expression in glandular alveolus (Fig.
