Abstract

Introduction: The intracranial bridging veins are pathways crucial for venous drainage of the brain. They are not only involved in pathological conditions but also serve as important landmarks within neurological surgery. Methods: The medical literature on bridging veins was reviewed in regard to their historical aspects, embryology, histology, anatomy, and surgery. Conclusion: Knowledge on the intracranial bridging veins and their dynamics has evolved over time and is of great significance to the neurosurgeon.
