In this image the liver has been lifted and rotated to reveal the IVC that is normally located within the caval fossa of the liver.

If continued bleeding is observed after performing a Pringle maneuver to determine the location of injury, one can assume that the injury is to the tributaries of the hepatic veins (which are receiving blood backflow from the IVC).
