Restoration of the vascular barrier following IR injury did not coincide with diminished perfused capillary volume or loss of vessel endothelialization. A Mice were perfused with FITC-BSA and immuno-probed for CD31 (PECAM-1) and ColIV followed by flat mounting and confocal microscopy. Arrows indicate empty sleeves that are positive for ColIV but lack FITC-BSA perfusion and CD31. BD Percent of FITC-BSA and CD31 co-localized with ColIV was determined at 2 day (B), 2 weeks (C), and 4 weeks (D) after IR injury. (bd) Density of ColIV-positive, FITC-negative, and CD31-negative empty sleeves were determined at 2 days (b), 2 weeks (c), and 4 weeks (d) after IR injury. No significant differences were observed between Sham and IR groups using both parametric (t test) and non-parametric (u test) statistics
