Hepatic veins are blood vessels which transport the liver's deoxygenated blood and blood which has been filtered by the liver (this is blood from the pancreas, colon, small intestine, and stomach) to the inferior vena cava. The hepatic veins originate in the liver lobule's central vein. Hepatic veins are unusual in that they do not have valves.
