|Veins near the bridge of the nose, receiving blood from regions around the eyes and root of the nose.
|A longitudinal vessel on the right side running alongside the vertebral column, involved in draining the thoracic wall and some abdominal structures into the superior vena cava.
|Formed by the union of the internal jugular and subclavian veins, these veins receive blood from the head, neck, and arms.
|Calf Muscle Pump
|The mechanism by which the calf muscles assist in venous blood flow, compressing deep veins in the leg during contraction to push blood upwards.
|Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
|A condition characterized by the formation of a blood clot within a deep vein, typically in the leg, which can obstruct blood flow and lead to complications like pulmonary embolism.
|External Jugular Vein
|A vein that drains the scalp and deep parts of the face, descending over the sternocleidomastoid muscle.
|A major venous channel running vertically down the face, responsible for draining venous blood from superficial areas.
|A type of capillary with pores in its endothelial lining, allowing for increased permeability and facilitating the transfer of small molecules.
|Great Saphenous Vein
|The longest vein in the body, running from the foot up the inside of the leg to the groin, where it drains into the femoral vein.
|Inferior Vena Cava
|The large vein that ascends along the spine, transporting blood from the lower parts of the body to the heart.
|Internal Jugular Vein
|A larger, deeper vein that runs medial to the sternocleidomastoid muscle, carrying venous blood from the brain, superficial face, and neck back toward the heart.
|A deep vein behind the knee, receiving blood from the lower leg and continuing upward to become the femoral vein in the thigh.
|A potentially life-threatening condition that occurs when a blood clot travels to the lungs and blocks one of the pulmonary arteries.
|Runs under the clavicle, acting as a major conduit for blood returning to the heart from the upper extremities and head.
|Superior Vena Cava
|A large vein that carries blood from the upper body into the right atrium of the heart.
|Dilated, twisted veins that result from venous insufficiency, typically occurring in the legs.
|A condition where the veins have trouble sending blood from the limbs back to the heart, often leading to varicose veins and other complications.
|A structure within veins that ensures one-way blood flow back to the heart, preventing backflow.
