Inferior sagittal sinus

Dr Craig Hacking and A.Prof Frank Gaillard et al.

The inferior sagittal sinus is one of the dural venous sinuses and runs along the inferior (free) edge of the falx cerebri. It runs from anterior to posterior, the same as the superior sagittal sinus, and drains into the straight sinus. It receives tributaries from the falx itself as well as some small veins from the medial surface of the cerebral hemispheres.
