Abstract

The macroscopic and microscopic anatomy of the parasellar space (PS) and of the entire central skull base (CSB) region has been increasingly investigated over the past two decades. As a result, the parasellar anatomy of nerves III through VI, the ICA, its branches, the venous structures, and the related osseous structures and adjacent dural folds are well described [1–15].
