Do Veins technically connect to Arteries through a tiny capillary system? Is this True?

Vein Treatment does not effect Arterial Pressure
Yes, arteries and veins do connect through the capillary system. No, removing a vein does not have any effect on arterial pressure. The dermal plexus of veins is very vast so there is no effect on the pressure in arteries.
I hope this helps.
Capillaries join arterioles.
