The formation and development of new blood vessels.
The formation and development of the vascular system, including the formation of blood vessels from endothelial cells.
the formation of new blood vessels
Vasculogenesis is the process of blood vessel formation in the embryo, occurring by a de novo production of endothelial cells. It is sometimes paired with angiogenesis, as the first stage of the formation of the vascular network, closely followed by angiogenesis.
Angiogenesis is the physiological process through which new blood vessels form from pre-existing vessels, formed in the earlier stage of vasculogenesis. Angiogenesis continues the growth of the vasculature by processes of sprouting and splitting.
