veins of upper limb

What are the 2 main groups of veins Superficial veins and Deep veins

What is the difference between deep and superficial veins Superficial veins lie in superficial fascia just under the skin Deep veins accompany the arteries
Vein that travels on the lateral aspect of upper limb and drains the dorsal venous network of the hand; receives accessory cephalic. As it ascends it travels through the deltopectoral triangle and terminates in the axillary vein Cephalic Vein
Vein that travels on the medial aspect of upper limb and drains the dorsal venous network of the hand; receives medial cubital vein which communicates with the cephalic vein. Ends by joining the brachial veins to form the axillary vein Basilic Vein
Where does the basilic vein end by joining the brachial veins to form the axillary vein? Approx. the inferior border of teres major
vein that travels on anterior surface of forearm and drains the palmar surface of hand. It ends in the median cubital vein Median Antebrachial vein
What 2 vessels does the median antebrachial vein divide in to Cephalic vein and Basilic vein
vein that drains into the dorsal metacarpal veins-->cephalic and basilic veins Dorsal Digital veins
vein that goes to palmar venous plexus-->median antebrachial vein Palmar Digital Veins
Veins that usually follow the arteries and are in pairs, communicate at intervals, and are usually quite small Deep Veins
Names of the deep veins (5) Deep veins of the hand, Deep veins of forearm, Brachial veins, axillary vein, Subclavian Vein
Deep Veins that correspond to arteries and arches of hand Deep veins of the hand
deep veins that are companions of the radial and ulnar arteries Deep veins of Forearm
Deep veins that accompany thebrachial artery, join basilic to form axillary vein Brachial Veins
Vein that begins at lower border of teres major muscle, ends at lateral border of 1st rib where it becomes the subclavian vein Axillary Vein
What vein is the axillary vein primarily a continuation of? Basilic vein
Deep vein from outer border of 1st rib, passes anterior to the anterior scalene muscle, thus is separated from the subclavian artery which lies posterior to anterior scalene muscle Subclavian Vein
