Superior sagittal sinus
The superior sagital sinus is the largest dural venous sinus. It runs (as the name suggests) in a sagittal plane from the anterior aspect of the falx cerebri to its termination at the torcular Herophili at the occipital protuberance, where it usually runs towards the right and into the right transverse sinus. It receives venous blood from the cortical veins over the cerebral hemispheres.
