Dorsal Digital Veins of The Foot

On the dorsum of the foot the dorsal digital veins receive, in the clefts between the toes, the intercapitular veins from the plantar cutaneous venous arch and join to form short common digital veins.

Famous quotes containing the words foot and/or veins:

    For forty days, for forty nights
    Jesus put one foot in front of the other
    and the man he carried,
    if it was a man,
    became heavier and heavier.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    More than I, if truth were told,
    Have stood and sweated hot and cold,
    And through their veins in ice and fire
    Fear contended with desire.
    —A.E. (Alfred Edward)
