A key central stage of wound healing requires neovascularization of the wound base granulation tissue. In the adult, neovascularization is now known to occur by both angiogenesis and vasculogenesis. Understanding the biology of these 2 processes offers promising new therapeutic options for patients who suffer from chronic, nonhealing ischemic wounds. The authors review the current literature on the processes of angiogenesis and vasculogenesis and how it relates to wound healing.
