Abstract

The posterior clinoid region (PCR) is related to many important structures, such as the cavernous sinus (CS), internal carotid artery (ICA), extraocular nerves, pituary gland, and clivus. The aim of our study was to characterize the microsurgical anatomy of the posterior clinoid region (PCR), including the posterior clinoid process (PCP) and its relationships to surrounding neurovascular structures.
