Pulmonary veins

Summary Information: Pulmonary veins

Pulmonary veins: The pulmonary veins collectively are one of the great vessels of the body. The pulmonary veins carry freshly oxygenated blood from the lungs to the heart. The pulmonary veins receive blood flow from the smaller veins, called the venules, and the pulmonary capillaries of the lungs and transport the blood into the left atrium of the heart. There are four main pulmonary veins: the right inferior, right superior, left inferior and left superior pulmonary veins. The pulmonary veins are the only veins that carry freshly oxygenated blood after birth.

Conditions that afflict the pulmonary veins include congenital heart disease, pulmonary vein stenosis and transposition of the great vessels.
