This is drained by the following nodes

Axillary nodes

Supratrochlear nodes

Infraclavicular nodes

Miscellaneous small isolated nodes along the vessels of upper extremity

Their vessels are arranged in two groups- superficial and deep. The deep vessels follow the deep arteries such as the radial, ulnar, interosseous and brachial arteries.

They all drain through the apical group of axillary nodes, which collect into efferents that enter the subclavian trunk. The left subclavian trunk enters the thoracic duct. That on the right enters the jugulosubclavian junction or the right lymph trunk.
