Abstract. The process of wound healing can be divided into substrate, proliferative, and remodeling phases. The basic biologic and physiologic events which transpire during these stages are examined in detail. Particular emphasis is placed on the interactions between platelets, macrophages, and other inflammatory cells, and fibroblasts in the healing wound. Recent advances in the roles played by interleukins, fibronectin, and epidermal growth factor are discussed. 1986 American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, Inc.
