- Vein that GSV empties into at the saphenofemoral junction.
- Primary vein of the thigh that is a continuation of the popliteal vein and accompanies the femoral artery in the upper portion of its course.
- Vein formed where the anterior and posterior tibial veins join, which ascends through the popliteal space to the thigh where it becomes the femoral vein.
- Veins that accompany the corresponding tibial arteries, which united to form the popliteal vein.
