Together, these dural folds form the oculomotor trigone, through which the oculomotor nerve enters the cavernous sinus. The medial extension of the dura covering the oculomotor trigone is the diaphragma sellae. 21 In addition to the formation of dural septa and sinuses, the layers of the dura also separate around the sella and parasellar regions and the Meckel cave. 22 It faces the temporal lobe laterally and the sphenoid bone, sella turcica, and pituitary gland medially. Anteriorly, the cavernous sinus fills the posterior margin of the superior orbital fissure below the anterior clinoid process, and it extends posteriorly to the petrous apex.
