Abstract

Veins in the paraumbilical region were investigated in eight fresh cadavers, in which radiopaque materials were injected into both the arterial and the venous systems, to determine their locational relationship to the arteries. Veins in the skin and subcutaneous tissue consisted of venae comitantes and non-venae comitantes. The main trunk of the non-venae comitantes was the superficial inferior epigastric vein, and it formed a polygonal venous network in the skin layer. A large communicating vein, which did not accompany an artery, connected the venous network to a vena comitans of a large paraumbilical arterial perforator. Venous blood that had perfused the dermis of the paraumbilical region had two kinds of pathways to a deep vein: through the superficial inferior epigastric vein to the femoral vein and through the vena comitans to the deep inferior epigastric vein.
