Although the Venae cerebri superiores (Superficial cerebral veins) are rather variable, here the subdivision suggested by Rhoton (2002 Neurosurgery 51, Suppl1:S159-204) is followed. The Superior cerebral veins drain to the Superior sagittal sinus, whereas the Venae cerebri inferiores drain into the Sinuses along the Cranial base. For the Venae trunci encephali and Venae cerebelli, Duvernoy HM (1995 The Human Brain Stem and Cerebellum. Springer, Vienna) is followed.
