Dr Mark, muscle atrophy and vascularity

i broke my wrist about 9mos ago. my right arm was in a full arm cast for a few weeks and atrophy did set in. today, the wrist and total arm muscle is

back to normal except that the veins in my right arm seem to have taken on a different appearance than the left arm, basically not as many visible veins. both arms used to be vascularly symmetrical. any thoughts ?

veins are never symmetrical from side to side.

veins are never symmetrical from side to side.

ok but is there any relationship between muscle atrphy and vascularity ?

Muscle atrophy leads to less prominant veins.
