Although neuroradiologists and skull base neurosurgeons are aware of the existence of veins within the clivus, such vessels have seldom been described in the literature. The aim of the present study is to elucidate the detailed venous structure of the clivus. Computed tomography digital subtraction venography (CT-DSV) images of 50 unruptured aneurysm cases were examined retrospectively. Eighteen emissary veins were identified in 14 (28.0%) cases. A half of the emissary veins connected the… CONTINUE READING
