STRUCTURE AND POSITION
- Subclavian Vein is a large vein with diameter almost same as that of little finger of hand, in an adult.
- Subclavian Vein is present in thorax under clavicle.
- Subclavian Vein runs below Clavicle hence named sub (below) clavian (clavicle).
- Subclavian Vein runs along with Subclavian artery but Anterior Scalene muscle separates them. Subclavian Vein lies anteriorly while Artery lies posterior to muscle.
- Subclavian Vein covered anteriorly by Clavicle, first Rib and Muscles.
Subclavian Vein starts at outer border of first rib as continuation of Axillary vein.
It continues its course under clavicle upwards and medially.
It ends by joining Internal Jugular Vein forming Brachiocephalic Vein. The angle at which both meet is called Venous Angle.
Subclavian Vein carry deoxygenated blood from Axillary Vein to Brachiocephalic Vein ultimately to heart.
Right Subclavian Vein receives Right Lymphatic Duct at Venous angle. It also empties its lymph from the body, inside it.
