In human anatomy, the common iliac veins are formed by the external iliac veins and internal iliac veins and together, in the abdomen at about the level of the umbilicus, form the inferior vena cava. They drain blood from the pelvis and lower limbs.
Both common iliac veins are accompanied along their course by common iliac arteries.
