Source: WordNet 2.1
External Iliac Artery: The external iliac artery is a major systemic artery that branches off from the common iliac artery in the pelvis. The external iliac artery supplies vital oxygenated blood and nutrients to the lower pelvis area and to the leg or lower extremity. Blood flows from the heart into the ascending aorta and aortic arch then into the thoracic aorta, abdominal aorta, the common iliac artery and finally the external iliac artery. The external iliac artery then branches off into the deep femoral artery and turns into the femoral artery.
Conditions that can afflict the external iliac artery include peripheral artery disease, diabetes, hypertension, smoking, high cholesterol, occlusion, aneurysm, thrombosis, embolism, atherosclerosis, and trauma.
