Veins of the Hand

The dorsal venous plexus of the hand and the ensuing cephalic (1) and basilic (2) veins drain the superficial aspects of the hand. The cephalic vein ends up in the axillary vein just before it becomes the subclavian and the basilic vein joins the brachial vein to become the axillary vein.
