The findings revealed a pattern of dorsal venous arches situated over each digit. Connections between those arches were at the level of the metacarpal heads, the(More)
Fresh human cadaveric hands were injected with a liquid plastic polymer and dissected under the operating microscope. On the palmar aspect of the digits, four different venous patterns could be identified, characterized by their tributaries and branching pattern, and by the presence, position and direction of valves. Arborized veins drain a limited volume(More)
