Notes

antebrachial, median

superficial veins of the palm and anterior forearm

median cubital v. or basilic v.

palm; anterior forearm

median antecubital v. is variable in size - it may be large or absent

basilic v.

medial end of the dorsal venous arch of the hand; superficial veins of the forearm; median cubital v.

it unites with the brachial vein(s) to form the axillary v.

superficial parts of the medial side of the hand and medial side of the forearm

basilic v. communicates with deep veins of the forearm through perforating veins, especially in the cubital region

brachiocephalic v.

formed by the union of the subclavian v. and the internal jugular v.; tributaries: vertebral v., thymic v., inferior thyroid v., internal thoracic v., 1st posterior intercostal v., left superior intercostal v. (to the left brachiocephalic v.)

the left and right brachiocephalic vv. unite to form the superior vena cava

head; neck; upper limb; anterior chest wall

at its origin, the left brachiocephalic v. receives the thoracic duct; at its origin, the right brachiocephalic v. receives the right lymphatic duct

cephalic v.

lateral side of the dorsal venous arch of the hand; superficial veins of the forearm

axillary vein

superficial parts of the lateral hand and lateral forearm

median cubital vein usually shunts some of the blood collected by the cephalic v. to the basilic v.

dorsal metacarpal v. of the hand

dorsal digital vv.

dorsal venous arch of the hand

dorsal aspects of the digits of the hand

dorsal metacarpal v. drains the adjacent sides of two digits

dorsal venous arch of the hand

dorsal digital vv. and dorsal metacarpal vv.

cephalic v. laterally, basilic v. medially

dorsum of the digits and the superficial structures of the dorsum ot the hand

dorsal venous arch is visible through the thin skin on the dorsum of the hand

median antebrachial v.

superficial veins of the palm and anterior forearm

median cubital v. or basilic v.

palm; anterior forearm

median antecubital v. is variable in size - it may be large or absent

median cubital v.

cephalic

basilic

superficial part of the hand and forearm

a median antebrachial vein occurs occasionally and, when present, it may drain into the median cubital vein
