Presented herein is a review of the principles, fundamental concepts, and possibilities of genetic engineering technologies of stimulating angiogenesis for treatment of patients with lower limb chronic ischaemia. This is followed by a detailed discussion of the structure and results of Russian and foreign studies on this direction, also considering the causes of differences of their results. Outlined is a circle of clinical situations in relation to which these technologies may be regarded as most promising.

KEY WORDS: lower limb chronic ischaemia, angiogenesis, stimulation of angiogenesis, genetic engineering technologies, translational medicine, gene therapy, vascular endothelial growth factor, angiogenin.
