The external iliac artery (EIA) is the larger of the two terminal branches of the common iliac artery (CIA).
The external iliac artery courses medially along the iliopsoas muscle 1. After it enters the thigh under the inguinal ligament, it changes name and continues as the common femoral artery, supplying the lower limb.
