      I believe this has been gone over before but the question has come up again.
 
      What is the correct name Superficial femoral or Femoral for the artery and vein in the thigh??
       Ran into a problem this week with this.
        Although the sentence said DVT in the SFV, the patient was not anticoagulated!!!!!!.
        Would appreciate all your inputs
