A 25-year-old woman comes to the office because of episodes of headache, diaphoresis, palpitations, and nausea for 2 weeks. These symptoms last for a few minutes before resolving. The most recent episode was yesterday, and she says that her blood pressure was 190/105 mmHg measured with her father's home blood pressure cuff. After extensive work-up, she is diagnosed with a pheochromocytoma in the left adrenal gland. She undergoes an elective removal of the affected gland. During the operation, the surgeon notes that her left adrenal gland does not drain into the left renal vein. Which of the following veins does her left adrenal gland most likely drain into?
