The femoral triangle, often qualified as "of Scarpa", is a triangular-shaped anatomical area located on the frontal aspect of the thigh. This area is networked by vessels, the femoral artery
, and the femoral nerve
. This is the area located by doctors when taking the femoral pulse, with the femoral vein
often catheterized with a central line, the line inserted for the administration of large doses of medication or rehydrating solutions, especially in cases of shock.
