Subclavian vein

The subclavian vein is one of two veins located in the shoulder region, just beneath the clavicle (collar bone) on both sides of the body: left and right It arises in the axillary vein and drains the deoxygenated blood of the upper lumb into the brachiocephalic vein. Running parallel to the subclavian artery, it receives the lymphs from the body tissue from the left lymphatic duct.
