We determined the frequency of superficial vein patterns of the upper limb in a sample of 885 people (438 men and 447 women) born in the department of Santander, Colombia according to the classification proposed by del Sol et al. The predominant pattern was I with 524 cases (30%) followed by pattern III with 451 cases (26%). Pattern I was the most prevalent in both the right arm with 286 cases (32%) and in the left upper limb with 238 cases (27%). In men, the pattern I was predominant with 307 cases (35%) followed pattern II with 228 cases (26%). In women the predominant pattern III was with 367 cases (41%) followed the pattern I with 217 cases (24%). The pattern in M classic frequency was similar in men and women with 8%.
