Overview

The Fibular, or Peroneal, Veins are a system of veins that run from the ankle to just below the knee.

Course

The Fibular Veins are known as Vena Comitants or accompanying veins. They follow the course of the Fibular Artery, draining blood from the lateral section of the calf, before emptying into Posterior Tibial Vein.

Etymology

Fibular refers to the veins proximity to the Fibula. Fibula is from the Latin for "clasp" or "brooch", refering to the way it seems to clasp the Tibia. Peroneal is from the Greek perone, for pin.
