Expert Answer:

 

Brachiocephalic veins are either of a pair of veins in the neck, each formed by the union of the internal jugular and subclavian veins. The left and right brachiocephalic veins (or innominate veins) in the upper chest are formed by the union of each corresponding internal jugular vein and subclavian vein. The brachiocephalic veins are the major veins returning blood to the superior vena cava.
