Intracranial Venous System

In this chapter we analyze the intracranial venous system in a craniofugal fashion: from deep, to cortical, to dural. The supratentorial compartment will be studied first, followed by the infratentorial level. The relevant embryological information needed is included in each section. The developmental venous anomalies (DVAs, so-called venous angiomas) will serve as a model for the venous variations. This will facilitate our understanding of variability and permit us to predict the different possible variants for the cerebral venous patterns.
