VEINS of the BODY
internal jugular All blood from the brain and deep areas of the face and neck are drained into it. There are two, and they pass down the neck beside the common carotid arteries. They empty into the subclavian veins.
brachiocephalic Also called innominate veins.
innominate Where the subclavian and internal jugular veins come together. There are two of these, and they merge together to form the superior vena cava.
external jugular The blood from the top of the head, part of the face, and the superficial neck region drain into these veins. They also empty into the subclavian veins.
There are several diploic veins , including the frontal diploic vein, occipital diploic vein, anterior temporal diploic vein, and posterior temporal diploic vein. These comprise the veins of the skull.
supratrochlear These two veins begin high in the forehead and descend to the root of the nose.
retromandibular Formed in the parotid gland by a union of the maxillary vein and the superficial temporal vein. It literally means behind the mandible.
Veins of the skull. diploic
Major vein of the brain. internal jugular
Veins which begin high in the forehead. supratrochlear
Vein formed in the parotid gland. retromandibular
Also referred to as innominate veins. brachiocephalic
basilic A major superficial vein of the upper extremity. It passes on the ulnar side of the forearm and eventually forms the axillary vein.
cephalic In addition to the cephalic vein, there are accessory cephalic and median cephalic veins. The cephalic vein is the other main superficial vein of the arm.
median cubital A large branch of the cephalic vein which goes over the cubital fossa and joins with the basilic vein.
median antebrachial Arises from the palmar venous plexus and passes up the forearm.
plexus means literally a network or tangle. It is a general term for a network of lymphatic vessels, nerves, or veins.

The small saphenous and the great saphenous veins are the superficial veins of the lower extremity. The greater saphenous is the longest vein of the body and is often harvested to repair vessels of the heart.
