Abstract
The variant anatomy of saphenous veins of forearm in the zones of venous flap rising remains unstudied yet, as well as the influence of the valve apparatus of saphenous veins on the arterial perfusion of venous flaps. The paper studies the variant anatomy of saphenous veins of the upper third of the volar surface of forearm. Two versions of saphenous veins are revealed: major (axial) and retiform. It is found experimentally that the valve apparatus of saphenous veins does not influence considerably the arterial perfusion of venous flaps of forearm.
