Anatomy of the cavernous sinus

  • Vinko V. Dolenc


The macroscopic and microscopic anatomy of the parasellar skull base region has been increasingly investigated in recent years. As a result, the intracavernous anatomy of the nerves III through VI, the internal carotid artery (ICA) with its branches, and the related osseous structures and adjacent dural folds are well described [3, 12, 21, 23, 25, 33–37, 41, 42, 47, 51].
