Anatomical terminology

The Great Cardiac Vein (left coronary vein) begins at the apex of the heart and ascends along the anterior longitudinal sulcus to the base of the ventricles.

It then curves to the left in the coronary sulcus, and reaching the back of the heart, opens into the left extremity of the coronary sinus.

It receives tributaries from the left atrium and from both ventricles: one, the left marginal vein, is of considerable size, and ascends along the left margin of the heart.
