microangiopathy

Any defect of very small blood vessels, usually capillaries, which is most common in diabetes, especially if poorly controlled. Despite thickening of the vascular basement membranes by a hyaline-like material, which corresponds to advanced glycosylation end products (AGEs), the vessels are leaky and allow transvascular passage of plasma proteins. AGEs or advanced diabetic microangiopathy-induced ischaemia directly impacts on the retina, the kidney and the peripheral nerves.
