Basilic Vein: The basilic vein is a major systemic vein located in the upper arm area. The paired basilic vein carries deoxygenated blood and carbon dioxide away from the superficial upper arm area back toward the heart. Blood flows from a variety of smaller veins and drains into the basilic vein, which drains into the axillary vein in the shoulder.
Conditions that can afflict the cephalic vein include thrombophlebitis, thrombosis and trauma.
