I don't think native has any real meaning here. I would just say "femoral and popliteal arteries".

English anatomy texts do not use femoropopliteal in my experience

Notes to answerer
Asker: Thank you. I suspect that client will come back and ask why I have left it out.

Asker: Reference gives rise to some good laughs. I`ll leave "native" out. Thank you.

agree  philgoddard: Asker: In that case, put a translator's note explaining why, and perhaps linking to Sue's very helpful reference. Alternatively, just leave it in to keep them happy.
