High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Vena comitans is Latin
for accompanying vein. It refers to a vein that is usually paired,
with both veins lying on the sides of an artery. They are found in
close proximity to arteries so that the pulsations of the artery
aid venous return. Because they are generally found in pairs, they
are often referred to by their plural form: venae comitantes. Venae
comitantes are usually found with certain smaller arteries,
especially those in the extremities. Larger arteries, on the other
hand, generally do not have venae comitantes. They usually have a
single, similarly sized vein which is not as intimately associated
with the artery.
