Very good on the artery. So many times specialists use the "Adjacent Artery" theory to differentiate between superficial and deep veins. In my opinion the fascia planes should be considered.
We treat soleal clots (case by case of course) as DVT considering the percent of contractility the soleal muscle experiences when stimulated which can dramatically increase the chance of embolism (thanks to my old kinesiology and sports med. profs.).

SOLEAL HAS NO ARTERY WITH IT. FYI
