Scientific notes
Libelle of note
In TA, all the veins of the foot were listed as superficial veins but should be identified according to their location, superficial or deep (Caggiati et al. 2002 J Vasc Surg 36:416-422; Kachlik et al. 2010 Phlebology 25:113-123, ibid. 2012, 27:48-58).
It has been suggested to separate the perforating veins. For further subdivision, see Caggiati et al. (2002) J Vasc Surg 36:416-422; Caggiati et al. 2005 J Vasc Surg 41:719-724).
This venous confluence receives blood from superficial veins in the lower abdominal wall, and is bordered by terminal and preterminal valves (Caggiati et al. 2002 J Vasc Surg 36:416-422; Kachlik et al. 2012 Phlebology 27:48-58).
New term for the proximal part of the femoral vein before the entrance of the deep femoral vein (Caggiati et al. 2002, 2005; Kachlik et al. 2012).
