Proliferation of fibroblasts, angiogenesis, and loose ECM

Vasculogenesis: the assembly of a primitive vascular network by angioblasts (endothelial cell precursors); This is the first process of angiogenesis, which happens to be the first step of "repair by connective tissue deposition"

What occurs in Vasculogenesis, what cells are involved, and what's this a process of???

(1) Neovascularization (a.k.a. angiogenesis, NOTE (2) Angiogenesis is a 2 step process; Neovascularization is the second process)

This sub-process of __________is critical process in healing at sites of injury, in the development of collateral circulations at sites of ischemia, and in allowing tumors to increase in size beyond the constraints of their original blood supply.
(1) What is the (sub) process that's being described???
(2) Fill in the blank

2 steps of scar formation (FIBROSIS)

Emigration and proliferation of fibroblasts into the site of injury
Deposition of ECM by fibroblasts

Why Repair Fails

Infection is the number one cause prolonging inflammatory response, and why this process can fail... Other problems include:
Nutrition: vit C deficiency (usually in children)

Glucocorticoids: Prolonged steroid use, limits inflamatory response.

Mechanical Variants (ex. Dehissence)
Poor perfusion (lack of bloodflow), Foreign Bodies (prolong inflam. Response)

Healing via 1st intension

Epithelial regeneration > fibrosis
Small scar formed, minimal contraction
1st 24 hours lots of neutrophils
By 72 hours lots of macrophages
By day 5 (PEAK) new vessels epidiermic returns to baseline thickness
During week 2 accumaltion of collagen and fibroblasts
By end of month by end of month not a lot of inflammation

Healing via 2nd intension

I.e. large wounds, abscess, ulcer
More intense inflammatory response
Large volume of necrotic debris, exudate, fibrin
Abundant granulation tissue
Needed to fill a larger gap
Myofibroblasts cause wound contraction
Large skin defect may reduce 5-10% in 6 weeks
Accumulation of ECM large scar

Why repair fails

Aberration in cell growth and ECM production
Excess collagen > keloid formation
Heritable, more common in blacks
Excessive granulation
Protrudes above skin and retards re-epithelialization
A.k.a. exuberant granulation "proud flesh"
Requires cautery to restore epithelialization


These cells Initiate a host of mediators that induce fibroblast proliferation and ECM production, in the process of fibrosis
