Great Saphenous Vein

We just learned about the Dorsal Venous Arch that helps bring deoxygenated blood from the foot toward the heart.

That vein connects to another very big vein called the Great Saphenous Vein.

This vein goes all the way from your foot up your leg to your hip.
It is the longest vein in the human body.
