    Images obtained in a 68-year-old man with a CCF. Left: Preoperative 3D digital subtraction angiogram showing that the CCF drains exclusively through the basal vein of Rosenthal (arrow) without any drainage into ophthalmic veins. Right: Postoperative digital subtraction angiogram demonstrating complete resolution of the fistula after simple microsurgical ligation of the draining vein as it exits the cavernous sinus.
