Abstract

On 50 human brains the width and course of the veins on the surface of the mesencephalon were determined. The basal vein, for example, has an inside diameter of 1.70 (0.91-2.88) mm. A lateral mesencephalic vein could be demonstrated in 70% of the cases, the width being 0.81 (0.29-1.78) mm. A posterior mesencephalic vein was found in 51%, measuring 0.57 (0.24-1.01) mm in diameter. The ponto-mesencephalic vein and the intercollicular vein were also included in this examination.
