The cell density (cells per unit area) of the endothelium decreases normally with aging because of cell disintegration; density ranges from…

  • 3000 to 4000 cells/mm2 in children
  • 1000 to 2000 cells/mm2 at age 80 years.
  • The minimum cell density necessary for adequate function is in the range of 400 to 700 cells/mm2.
