What is the difference between vena cava and veins?

Dear Student,

Venae Cavae, these are two large veins which carry deoxygenated blood from the body and pump it in to the heart.
Inferior vena cava – Lower body to heart
Superior vena cava – upper body to heart
These are blood vessels which carry mostly deoxygenated blood whole of the body and pump in to the heart.
Exceptions – Pulmonary and umbilical veins carry oxygenated blood to heart.
