Adult Cranial Dura II: Venous Sinuses and Their Extrameningeal Contributions

Shukla, Vershalee; Hayman, L. Anne; Taber, Katherine H.

Collapse Box


This is the second of two articles designed to provide detailed user-friendly schematics of the adult dural vascular anatomy. It supplements the first article on the intrinsic meningeal arteries and veins by describing the dural venous sinuses along with their three remaining connections: to the brain, to the diploë, and to the extracranial soft tissues. The discussion of this anatomy is supplemented by illustrative pathologic insights. This information will assist in interpreting neuroimaging studies, communication with clinicians, and teaching of this complex subject.
