ON THE FOOT VENOUS NETWORK (Abstract): The earliest considerations of the venous circulation of the leg and calf belong to DENTU. Then, BOURDERET and LEJARS described more detailed the morphology veins of the foot and impressed venous network of the leg, they called it ”venous sandal”. Much later, ANDER and VAN LIMBORGH fully presented their considerations on leg venous network, while trying to clarify issues on the communicating veins. In this paper the authors present their considerations on leg venous network, comparing them with the literature data and, particularly, making observations on the communicating veins and causal factors that facilitate the flow of blood return.
Key words: VEIN NETWORK, COMMUNICATING VEINS, BLOOD RETURN CIRCULATION, CAUSAL FACTORS
