Dural Venous Sinuses

by Craig Canby, PhD

The group of sinuses that serves to return deoxygenated blood from the brain and cranial cavity to the heart are the dural venous sinuses. The cranial cavity consists of seven major dural venous sinuses: sigmoid, transverse, superior sagittal, straight, inferior sagittal, superior petrosal, and cavernous. The lattermost is considered to be the most clinically significant venous sinus. Largely, the situations in which the structures of venous sinuses are important to physicians include cases of possible intracranial infections or venous sinus thromboses.
