Branching TypeLDV TerminationTotal (110 LDV)
Type 2 (a suprathalamic LDV)ICV: anterior third87.27%
ICV: middle third7063.64%
ICV: middle third, as a common stem with an MAV21.82%
Type 3 (a retrothalamic LDV)ICV: posterior third1816.36%
ICV: posterior third, as a common stem with an MAV87.27%
Great cerebral vein21.82%
  • Note:—MAV indicates medial atrial vein.

  • a The presence of the LDV characterizes types 2 and 3 of the ICV branching patterns.
