Summary Information: Femoral Vein

Femoral Vein: The femoral vein is a major systemic vein located in the upper leg area. The paired femoral vein carries deoxygenated blood and carbon dioxide drained away from the thigh back toward the heart. Blood flows from the smaller veins in the thigh to the femoral vein then flows into the external iliac vein and the common iliac vein. Blood then moves into the inferior vena cava and finally into the right atrium of the heart.

Conditions that can afflict the femoral vein include thrombosis and trauma.
