Background/aim: The central area of the brain, including the pre- and post-central gyri with their vascular structures, is one of the most crucial regions to preserve in neurosurgical intervention. The central sulcus is also a landmark of utmost importance for neurosurgeons. Although the arteries supplying the central region have been briefly described, their exact course has not been studied. The aim of the study is to establish the position and course of the central sulcus artery in relation to the central sulcus and its convolutions.
