Popliteal Vein: The popliteal vein is a major systemic vein located in the knee area. The paired popliteal vein carries deoxygenated blood and carbon dioxide drained away from the knee, thigh and calf back toward the heart. Blood flows from the smaller veins in the knee, thigh, and calf into the popliteal vein, then into the femoral vein then flows into the external iliac vein and the common iliac vein.
Conditions that can afflict the popliteal vein include thrombosis and trauma.
