BRACHIAL VEINS (2 Venae comittantes of brachial artery)

 

ORIGIN: Radial and ulnar veins


COURSE/DRAINAGE:
 Begins at the level of the neck of radius in the cubital fossa by the union of the radial and ulnar veins draining the forearm. These veins (2) veins begin at the level of the neck of radius and proceeds upwards accompanied by the brachial artery. It begins at the level of the neck of radius in the cubital fossa and ascends in the upper arm accompanying the brachial artery. It is  initially lateral to the median nerve and later crossing to its medial aspect at the level of the insertion of the coracobrachialis (midpoint of the upper arm). It becomes the axillary vein after draining the basilic vein at the level of the lower border of teres major.
