Veins of face and scalp (Anterior view: deep) (English)

Veins of face and scalp (Anterior view: deep) (English)

The main vein draining the deep structures of the face is the facial vein, which receives various tributaries that run a similar course to their arterial counterparts and are therefore identically named. The facial vein originates at the lower margin of the orbit as a continuation of the angular vein, which is formed by the junction of the supratrochlear and supraorbital veins. The facial vein courses inferolaterally, directly posterior to the facial artery. It receives the superior labial, inferior labial and deep facial vein (previous image) as tributaries, and terminates by draining into the internal jugular vein.
