  • Also called retroinguinal space or Bogros' space
  • It is an extraperitoneal space situated deep to the inguinal ligament
  • It's limited by the fascia transversalis anteriorly, the peritoneum posteriorly and the iliac fascia laterally 
  • This preperitoneal space communicates with prevesical space of Retzius. 
  • It is divided into two compartments. 
  • The medial compartment contains vasculature including the femoral artery and vein.
