In brief: Wounds and diseases

These are too numerous to list all of them. The most common cause of lower extremity wounds is hypertension of the veins -- venous hypertension.
This is due to a problem with the blood flow in the veins as the blood tries to return to the heart.

In brief: Lack of blood flow

Reasons for poor wound healing are many.
Lack of blood blow, also known as ischemia is a big reason. Others include swelling from congestive heart failure or venous hypertension. Infection, necrosis, diabetes, neuropathy, malnutrition are also frequent issues for delayed wound healing.
