Inferior vena cava: The inferior vena cava is the largest vein in the body and one of the great vessels of the body. The function of the inferior vena cava is to carry deoxygenated blood from smaller veins in the lower half of the body back to the heart. Blood flows into the inferior vena cava from veins that include the common iliac veins, renal vein, lumbar veins, gonadal veins, suprarenal veins, and hepatic veins. The inferior vena cava drains blood into the right atrium of the heart. Conditions that afflict the inferior vena cava include trauma, congenital heart defects, cancer, occlusion, abdominal aortic aneurysm, and transposition of the great vessels.
