Brachiocephalic Vein: The brachiocephalic vein is a major systemic vein in the upper thorax or chest area. The paired brachiocephalic vein carries deoxygenated blood and carbon dioxide away from the head and upper body back toward the heart. Blood flows through a variety of smaller veins in the head and upper body to the internal jugular vein and the subclavian vein, which join to form the brachiocephalic vein. Blood then drains into the superior vena cava before entering the right atrium of the heart.
Conditions that can afflict the brachiocephalic vein include thrombosis and trauma.
