The inferior thyroid veins two, frequently three or four, in number, arise in the
venous plexuson the thyroid gland, communicating with the middle and superior thyroid veins.
They form a
plexusin front of the trachea, behind the Sternothyreoidei.
From this plexus, a left vein descends and joins the left
innominate trunk, and a right vein passes obliquely downward and to the right across the innominate arteryto open into the right innominate vein, just at its junction with the superior vena cava; sometimes the right and left veins open by a common trunk in the latter situation.
These veins receive esophageal tracheal, and inferior laryngeal veins, and are provided with valves at their terminations in the
