The sella turcica bridge (STB) is the true bony union of the anterior and posterior clinoid processes while the clinoid enlargement (CLEN), is the overlapping of the anterior and posterior clinoid processes4 and not necessarily real bony fusion.
The area of the anterior clinoid process is most conveniently approached by beginning the resection of the lesser wing of the sphenoid bone laterally.
pierces the dura below the posterior clinoids and angles forward over the tip of the petrous bone, passing through or around the inferior petrosal sinus, through the Dorello canal (under the petroclinoid ligament) to enter the cavernous sinus (Fig.
The anterior clinoid process is a part of the roof to the cavernous sinus in its frontal portion.
This icnogenus results from the erosive action of clinoid sponges and drilling poliquets (Bromley & D'Alessandro, 1984), indicating shallow sea.
Its posterior border is marked by the petroclinoidal (petrosphenoidal or Gruber's) ligament extending between the petrous apex and posterior clinoid process of the sphenoid.
3,4) These tumors most often arise from the sphenoid wing, but additional sites include clinoid, planum sphenoidale, frontoparietal area, and olfactory groove.

This abnormal and extensive thickening of the bone extended from the sphenoid wing down to the anterior clinoid process with some thickening of the bone around the optic canal.
The anterior, middle and the posterior clinoid processes are located in the middle cranial fossa of the skull.
