Fascia lata

Last revised by Craig Hacking on 25 Aug 2021

The fascia lata is part of the deep fascia, and envelopes the thigh analogous to a stocking, but with an over large proximal end.

Within the femoral triangle, the great saphenous vein passes through the saphenous hiatus to drain into the femoral vein.
