OBJECTIVES: The aim of the present study was to examine the superior sagittal sinus (SSS) and bridging veins (BVs) from an anatomical, neurosurgical and radiological perspective.
METHODS: Computed tomography venographies (CTVs) of 30 patients and 9 cadaveric dissections of human SSS were analyzed.
RESULTS: CTV and cadavers showed most BVs emptying into the SSS close by (±3 cm) and distal to the coronary suture (74% in CTV, 62% in cadavers).
CONCLUSIONS: Important anatomical information can be drawn from cerebral CTV for neurosurgical preoperative planning.
