Is it ever at all possible to feel a pulse when touching a vein? Or is this only specific to arteries? Is there an artery near the small saphenous?

Arteries close to small saphenous vein include posterior tibial on the lower part and poplitial in the upper part og leg. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
