Superficial Venous Vasculature of Right Cerebral Hemisphere

Surgical Correlation


Superficial venous vasculature of right cerebral hemisphere. The cerebral veins are a group of superficial veins that drain into the superior sagittal and transverse sinuses or into the superior anastomotic vein (vein of Trolard) or inferior anastomotic vein (vein of Labbe). The vein of Trolard connects the superficial middle cerebral vein with the superior sagittal sinus located in the upper part of the falx cerebri. The superficial middle cerebral vein (of Sylvius) begins on the lateral hemispheric surface and follows along the lateral sulcus anteriorly where it curves around the temporal lobe to end in the cavernous or sphenoparietal sinus.
