External Iliac Vein: The external iliac vein is a major systemic vein located in the pelvis area. The paired external iliac vein carries deoxygenated blood and carbon dioxide drained away from the lower extremity and abdominal wall back toward the heart. Blood flows from the smaller veins in the lower extremity and abdominal wall to the external iliac vein then flows into the common iliac vein. Blood then moves into the inferior vena cava and finally into the right atrium of the heart.
Conditions that can afflict the external iliac vein include thrombosis and trauma.
