Difference between venular and venule




  1. a minute vein continuous with a capillary


Blood then goes back through the capillaries into venules, and then to larger veins until it reaches the vena cavae.

Pockets of dead tissue, perhaps caused by venule occlusions, are often seen in autopsies of people who had dementia late in life, says Nguyen, and now researchers have a way to study this phenomenon.

These findings suggest that small occlusions in the venule system may play a role in cognitive dysfunction.
