NC75.1Z/S75.1 Injury of femoral vein at hip or thigh level, unspecified



Injury of the femoral vein at the hip or thigh level is most commonly caused by trauma, such as a direct blow or a fall on one’s hip or thigh. Other possible causes include penetrating injuries, such as a gunshot wound or a stab wound, or medical procedures such as surgery.


Diagnosis of an injury of the femoral vein can be difficult without an imaging test. An ultrasound or a CT scan is typically used to identify the extent of the injury and any possible complications.

Differential diagnosis

Other conditions that can cause similar symptoms, such as swelling and discoloration of the skin, include deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and other venous insufficiency disorders.


Treatment of an injury of the femoral vein typically involves anticoagulants and pain medications. In some cases, surgery may be necessary to repair the vein.


The prognosis for an injury of the femoral vein depends on the extent of the damage and the type of treatment received. In general, if the injury is treated promptly, the prognosis is generally good.
