Common iliac artery
Jump to navigation Jump to search
Common iliac artery is the terminal branches of the abdominal aorta.
- Both common iliac arteries are accompanied along their course by the two common iliac veins which lie posteriorly and to the right.
- Their terminal bifurcation is crossed anteriorly by the ureters.
- This is significant as the bifurcation of the common iliac artery is the second point of ureteric constriction.
