Pericyte distribution and capillary dimensions were determined in tissue obtained at autopsy from human pectoral, abdominal, quadriceps femoris, and gastrocnemius muscle of 20 diabetics and 20 age- and sex-matched nondiabetics. Tissue was processed for electron microscopy, and morphometric data obtained from electron micrographs were used to calculate capillary circumference, the percentage of capillary circumference covered by pericytes, and capillary basement membrane width (CBMW).
