All veins lead to the right atrium of the heart. After the right atrium, blood goes into the right ventricle then the pulmonary arteries to the lungs. All venous emboli will eventually end up in the lungs.

'venous thrombosis' is a blood clot in a vein. Sometimes these blood clots can break off from where there are and travel 'embolize' to the lung 'pulmonary'. When the blood clot travels to the lung, it will get stuck in an vessel in the lung and block flow in that branch of the blood vessel. In some medical studies, as many as 40% of people with blood clots in their legs or pelvis will have a PE, or pulmonary embolis. These are often small and go un-noticed. Unfortunately they can also be very serious and even lead to death.
Venous ulcer are caused by venous insufficiency (improper functioning of venous valves).
