The vascular structure already included in the model were the following: internal jugular veins, anastomotic connections, azygos plexus, cerebrospinal inflow, and outflow pathways (Fig. 2b) [11, 14, 21]; main arterial tree of the human body outside the braincase (Fig. 2b, arteries 1 to 55) [25, 26]
