Summary

The basic microvascular anatomy of the human dura is described. The named dural arteries give rise to two outer anastomotic sets of vessels. From the outer arteries, penetrating vessels descend to supply a rich capillary network located near the arachnoid. Arteriovenous shunts are present in the midportion of the dura, which may function to bypass the capillary network.

La vascularisation et la microvascularisation de la Dure-mère

Résumé

Les auteurs décrivent l'anatomie de la microvascularisation de la dure-mère chez l'homme. Les artères durales donnent naissance à deux jeux de vaisseaux anastomotiques externes. Partant de ces artères externes, des vaisseaux perforants descendent pour alimenter und riche réseau capillaire situé près de l'arachnoïde. Des shunts artério-veineux existent dans la partie moyenne de la dure-mère qui peuvent éliminer le système capillaire.

Die Makro- und Mikro-Vaskulatur der Dura

Zusammenfassung

Es wird die Anatomie der Gefäß-versorgung der menschlichen Dura beschrieben. Von den Haupt-Dura-Arterien entspringen 2 äußere Gefäßanastomosen. Von diesen Gefä\en wird ein dichtes kapilläres netzwerk versorgt, das nahe der Arachnoidea liegt. Im mittleren Abschnitt der Dura liegen arteriovenöse Shunts vor.
