Quick Facts

The inferior anastomotic vein (Labbé's vein, or Browning’s vein) is a superficial cerebral vein that anastomoses posteriorly with the transverse sinus, and anteriorly with the superficial middle cerebral vein. Through this merging of vessels the inferior anastomotic vein assists in the draining of the orbit and upper regions of the brain into the dural venous sinuses.
