Gonadal Vein

Friday, October 12, 2012

The gonadal vein is one of a pair of veins which receives deoxygenated blood from the testis or ovary, draining it to the inferior vena cava (the one on the right side) and to the renal vein (the one on the left side). In men, the gonadal vein is called testicular vein; in women, it is called ovarian vein.
