Small Saphenous Vein

We just learned about the great saphenous vein that brings deoxygenated blood from the foot up the leg toward the heart.

Another big vein in the foot and leg is the small saphenous vein.

Even though it's name says small, the vein is very big.
It goes from the outside of your foot, then up behind your ankle and up the back of your leg.
