Keeping this in consideration, where is the Saphenofemoral Junction?
Saphenofemoral junction – located 4cm inferior and lateral to pubic tubercle – site of great saphenous vein passing through fascia lata (saphenous opening) to reach the femoral vein. Also superficial inguinal lymphatics passing deeply to join deep inguinal lymphatics which then enter into abdomen via femoral canal.
Additionally, what is Saphenofemoral junction incompetence? Introduction: Doppler ultrasonography (USG) is the primary modality for diagnosis of superficial venous reflux caused by incompetence of venous valves of the great saphenous vein (GSV) and usually associated with competence of saphenofemoral junction (SFJ).
Also asked, where does the small saphenous vein drain into?
Small saphenous vein. The small (short or lesser) saphenous vein is a superficial vein of the leg. It drains the lateral surface of the leg, and runs up the posterior surface of the leg to drain into the popliteal vein.
What is Saphenofemoral ligation?
Ligation means the surgical tying of veins through a small incision in the skin to prevent pooling of blood. Ligation may be used in conjunction with vein stripping, or removal of the vein. In many instances, the vein is removed using a minimally invasive surgical procedure called venous ablation.
