Hepatic Veins

Summary Information: Hepatic Veins

Hepatic Veins: The hepatic veins are major systemic veins located in the upper abdomen and lower chest area. The hepatic veins carry deoxygenated blood and carbon dioxide away from the liver back toward the heart. Blood flows from the liver through the hepatic veins, which then carry the blood into the inferior vena cava and then into the right atrium of the heart.

Conditions that can afflict the hepatic veins include Budd-Chiari syndrome, hepatic veno-occlusive disease, and trauma.
