The inferior vena cava, commonly referred to as the IVC, is a large vein that moves deoxygenated blood from the lower and middle portions of the body into the right atrium of the heart. It is formed where the right and the left common iliac veins join, usually at the level of the fifth lumbar vertebra. The inferior vena cava is the lower (“inferior”) of the two vena cavae found in the human body. These are two large veins that carry deoxygenated blood from the body: the inferior vena cava carries blood from the lower half of the body. The superior vena cava carries blood from the upper portion of the body. It is a large retroperitoneal vein that lies posterior to the abdominal cavity and runs along the right side of the spinal cord. It enters the right atrium at the lower right, back side of the heart.
