Dorsal venous arch of the foot
The dorsal venous arch of the foot is a superficial vein that connects the small saphenous vein and the great saphenous vein. Anatomically, it is defined by where the dorsal veins of the first and fifth digit, respectively, meet the great saphenous vein and small saphenous vein.
Additional recommended knowledge
It is usually fairly easy to palpate and visualize (if the patient is barefoot). It lies superior to the metatarsals bones approximately midway between the ankle joint and metatarsal phalangeal joints.
