GREAT SAPHENOUS VEIN-PERFORATORS

BLOOD FLOWS THROUGH GREAT SAPHENOUS V. => PERFORATORS => DEEP CALF VEINS.

PERFORATORS:
1. Below medial malleolus.
2. Just above medial malleolus.
3. 10cm above medial malleolus.
4. Near the middle of the leg.
5. In the lower thigh connecting the great saphenous vein (or its tributaries) to the femoral vein.

The lower perforators are frequently joined together by a superficial trunk - the posterior arch vein, which joins the great saphenous vein below the knee.
