Subclavian Vein: The subclavian vein is a major systemic vein in the upper chest. The paired subclavian vein is continuous with the axillary vein and carries deoxygenated blood and carbon dioxide away from the shoulder area back toward the heart. Blood flows from a variety of smaller veins and the axillary vein and drains into the subclavian vein. The subclavian vein joins with the internal jugular vein to form the brachiocephalic vein, where blood then flows toward the superior vena cava and into the right atrium of the heart.
Conditions that can afflict the subclavian vein include thrombophlebitis, thrombosis and trauma.
