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