The difference between veins is their function. While veins usually carry deoxygenated blood from tissues back to the heart, the pulmonary veins are among the few veins that carry oxygenated blood instead. Oxygenated blood from the lungs is circulated back to the heart through the pulmonary veins that drain into the left atrium.
