[IP] Inner thigh sites considered safe

There is a large vein deep in the inner surface of the thigh but the key
word is deep. A sil needle even aiming for that vein will not reach it. The
remainder of the inner thigh surface is fairly free of large veins which you
could impale with a microsoft set or sil. The deep femoral artery is used to
insert an intra-aortic baloon pump so it is huge. but ask any cardiologist
who has put a baloon pump in how hard it is to get the artery when aiming
for it. The femoral vein runs right next to the artery.
