Summary Information: Small Saphenous Vein

Small Saphenous Vein: The small saphenous vein is a major systemic vein located in the leg. The paired small saphenous vein carries deoxygenated blood and carbon dioxide drained away from the superficial areas of the foot and leg back toward the heart. Blood flows from the smaller veins in the foot and leg into the small saphenous vein and then into the popliteal vein. Blood then travels into the femoral vein then flows into the external iliac vein and the common iliac vein.

Conditions that can afflict the popliteal vein include varicose vein, thrombosis, and trauma.
