Large arteries are carefully bound by trabeculae to the surface of the brain from the point at which they enter the skull (Standring 2004; Waxman 2000). Within the subarachnoid space, CSF freely circulates; rupture of an intracranial artery within the subarachnoid space causes blood and CSF to mix, and is referred to as subarachnoid haemorrhage. CSF is absorbed into arachnoid villi, membranous tufts that project into the superior sagittal and transverse venous sinuses and provide conduits into the venous system.
At the uppermost part of the system, two lateral ven- What is a Stroke? 1 The ventricular system.

The right lateral ventricle is commonly the site for cannulation when CSF drainage by ventriculostomy or shunt, and/or intracranial pressure monitoring is required. The two lateral ventricles are connected by the foramen of Monro to the third ventricle, which lies directly above the midbrain of the brainstem.
This layer supports the brain and spinal cord, holding nerves and blood vessels in place (Standring 2004; Waxman 2000). Within the double layers of the dura mater are venous sinuses that collect blood drained from intracranial and meningeal veins for return to the systemic venous circuit via the internal jugular veins (Standring 2004). Within the cranium four extensions of the dura mater provide direct support for brain structures and separate specific areas of the brain: • • • • The falx cerebri vertically divides the right and left hemispheres of the brain from the frontal to the occipital lobe.
