The dorsal venous network of hand is a superficial network of veins on the back of the hand that is made up of the hand’s dorsal metacarpal veins. The dorsal venous network empties into the cephalic vein - this is one of the arm’s primary veins, and is often visible in the crook of the elbow - and the basilic vein (which moves along the base of the forearm and the arm).
