Femoral triangle - Definition


Definition


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.
