CANESSA, César E.; GONZALEZ, Daniel  y  MANSILLA, Ricardo. ANATOMICAL VARIATIONS OF THE POSTERIOR COMMUNICATING VEINS OF THE LEG AND ITS CLINICAL IMPORTANCE. Rev. chil. anat. [online]. 1999, vol.17, n.1, pp. 5-9. ISSN 0716-9868.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0716-98681999000100001.

SUMMARY:The present research was undertaken in order to identify anatomical factor to link the variable clinical and hemodynamic consequences of the incompetent communicating veins of the leg. The study was done by dissection in 100 lower limbs of 58 adult people of both sexes. It was found a main communicating vein in 92% of legs with variable anastomosis pattern between the superficial veins and the deep venous system, and receiving thick muscles branches in 12%. This variation could bias the reflux degree of incompetent veins and its transmission, but its signification requires clinical assessment.
