12) The number of layers of smooth muscle is lower in arterioles compared with muscular arteries.

13) Capillaries also have the three typical layers: tunica intima, tunica media and tunica adventitia.

14) Fenestrated capillaries consist of an endothelium with perforations that can be freely crossed by blood plasma.
