Abstract

The hepatic portion of the caudal vena cava was studied in 100 livers of adult, male, Nelore bovines, from Aragatuba, SP. The hepatic portions varied from 12 to 27 cm in length (average 19.9 cm); the distance of this portion between the ostia of the right and intermediate hepatic veins ranged from 15 to 9 cm (average 5.3 cm); the diameter of the caudal vena cava at the level of the liver varied from 5 to 12.5 cm (average 8.8 cm); the ostia of smaller hepatic veins ranged from 12 to 35 (higher frequency: 17, in 13%).
