Descriptor senos craneales
Entry term(s) senos venosos
Scope note: Grandes canales venosos tapizados por endotelio situados entre las dos capas de la DURAMADRE, el endostio y las menínges. Estan desprovistos de válvulas y forman parte del sistema venoso de la duramadre. Los principales senos venosos comprenden un grupo posteroanterior (como son los senos sagital superior, sagital inferior, recto, transverso y occipital) y un grupo anteroinferior (como el seno cavernoso, el petroso y el plexo basilar).

Scope note: Large endothelium-lined venous channels situated between the two layers of DURA MATER, the endosteal and the meningeal layers. They are devoid of valves and are parts of the venous system of dura mater. Major cranial sinuses include a postero-superior group (such as superior sagittal, inferior sagittal, straight, transverse, and occipital) and an antero-inferior group (such as cavernous, petrosal, and basilar plexus).
