BACKGROUND: Despite significant improvement in clinical care, operative strategies, and technology, neurosurgery is still risky, and optimal preoperative planning and anatomical assessment are necessary to minimize the risks of serious complications. Our purpose was to document the dural venous sinuses (DVS) and their variations identified during routine 3-dimensional (3D) venography created through 3D models for the teaching of complex cerebral anatomy.
