Conclusions

The anatomy of the abducent nerve in the petroclival region helps explain abducent palsies seen in clinical practice. Knowledge of the relationships between bony landmarks, venous sinus anatomy, and cranial nerves is critical for safe surgery in this area. Additionally, familiarity with anatomical variations enhances surgical knowledge.
