Flashcards in Lecture: Veins and Lymphatics - Matz Deck (20):
1

how many valves?
great saphenous
small saphenous

10-20(more numerous in leg than thigh)
9-12

2

which side of the tendocalcaneus is the small saphenous v

lateral

3

why venae comitantes?

heat exchange

when hot - venae comitantes engorged

4

tributaries to femoral v

popliteal
deep femoral
medial and lateral circumglex femoral
great saphenous

5

popliteal v is _____ to a

superficial
- most superficial structue (think of small saphenous entering in to it)

6

the femoral v is ______ to a ***

posterolateral
- in triangle lies medial to the a

7

joins superficial and deep veins

perforating veins

8

dodd veins

femoral canal perforators (adductor canal)

9

boyd veins

paratibial perforator (calf m)

10

cockett veins

posterior tibial perforators (proximal to ankle joint)

11

bassi veins

peroneal or lateral calf perforators (5-7 cm above lateral malleolus)

12

lymph traveling with great spahenous v end in

inferior group of superficial inguinal nodes

13

lymphatics
dorsalis pedis and anterior tibial -->
medial and lateral plantar --->
posterior tibial and peroneal -->
femoral, deep femoral -->

ant. tibial node
popliteal
popliteal
deep inguinal

14

where do lymph vessels begin?

blind-ended capillaries

15

how many popliteal lymph nodes

6/7 in three groups
anterior to popliteal a: knee jt
posterior to popliteal a: vessels coursing with small saphenous v
side of popliteal a: vessels that course with ant and post tib and peroneal a

efferents from here will drain into deep inguinal nodes

16

lop-sided T of superfiical inguinal nodes

horizontal/superior group (parallels inguinal ligament, afferents from superior and lateral gluteal regions, anterior abdominal wall and perineum)

vertical/inferior group (parallels terminal portion of great saphenous v, afferents from foot, leg, thigh and perineum)

efferents from here pass to external iliac nodes

17

name uppermost inguinal node

gland of cloquet or node of rosenmuller

18

receives afferents from pelvis and deeped aspects of the gluteal region

internal iliac nodes (located within pelvis)

19

generally indicates infection localized within the perineum

swollen superficial inguinal nodes

20

generally indicates infection localized with the lower limb

swollen deep infuinal nodes
