Opening of the blockage allows resolution of symptoms. Venous blockage results in local pain, redness, swelling over the superficial vein involved. Deep venous thrombosis requires anticoagulation. Many other veins take over the function. ...Read more
Look closely: Arteries and veins tend to run together except in lung, liver and brain, and arteries have thicker walls than the corresponding veins. Nerves are less elastic and don't have have the hole down the middle. ...Read more
Pulmonary: Veins carry deoxygenated blood back to the heart and arteries carry oxygenated blood away from the heart and towards the organs. Pulmonary arteries carry deoxygenated (venous) blood to the lungs and pulmonary veins carry oxygenated (arterial) blood out of the lungs. ...Read more
