Flashcards in Veins Deck (16)
1

radial and ulnar veins

fromed from the deep veins of the hand
run alongside the corresponding bones
anatomose to form brachial veins

2

brachial veins

from when the radial and ulnar veins anastomose near the elbow
pass through the region of the upper arm

3

axillary veins

fromed when the brachial veins and the sperficial veins of the upper extremity anastomose and pass through the axilla

4

subclavian veins

direct contiunation of axillary veins
the axillaryveins change to the subclavian veins at the lateral borders of the first rib

5

external jugular veins

drain blood from the face, scalp, and neck
empty into subclavian veins

6

internal jugular veins

drain blood from the cranial vault and brain
anastomose with subclavian veins to form the brachiocephalic veins

7

brachiocephalic veins

fromed when the subcalvian and internal jugular veins anastomose

8

superior vena cava

fromed when the right and left brachiocephaic veins anastomose
receives blood from the entire upper body and then empties in to the right atrium of the heart

9

anterior and posterior tibal veins

formed by the anastomosis of deep veins of the foot
travel along the medial side of the leg until they empty into the femoral veins

10

great saphenous veins

formed by the anastomosis of the superficial veins of the foot
travel along the medial side of the leg until they empty into the femoral veins

11

peroneal veins

join the posterior tibial veins just prior to entering the popliteal region

12

popliteal veins

formed by the anastomosis of the anterior and posterior tibial veins as well as the peroneal veins
they are located in the popliteal region behind the knee

13

femoral veins

direct continuation of the popilteal veins as they pass into the region of the femur

14

external iliac veins

direct continuation of the femoral veins that run through the pelvic region

15

common iliac veins

formed by the anastomosis of the internal and external iliac veins just anterior of the sacral iliac joints

16

inferior vena cava

formed by the anastomosis of the right and left common iliac veins
