Inferior vena cava
During a recent echocardiogram the following line appeared in the report:  The inferior vena cava fails to close during respiratory maneuvers.  Can you tell me what this means?

Did you post this in the expert forums?
You hold the mouse over Experts in the heading above, then bring the mouse down to "ask an expert forums" and then click.
Then in the right column, under "ask a Doctor forums", click on heart disease.
