Comparison between the young and elderly groups in capillary diameter and microvascular branch points of the intra-tibial nerve. a Mean capillary diameter of the elderly was significantly smaller in comparison to that of the young group (P < 0.01). b The mean number of microvascular branch points for the elderly group was significantly decreased in comparison to that observed for the young group (P < 0.01). Values are presented as mean ± SEM. ** P < 0.01, young versus elderly
