    Introduction: The size and diameter of the meningeal vessel impression in the inner surface of parietal bone vary in different individuals. Taking into account the structural and biomechanical interaction between the endocranial vessels and vault bones, we aimed to evaluate the correlation between vascular diameters with bone thickness. Materials and Methods: Using a Vernier caliper, parietal bone thickness at 4 points, anterosuperior, anteroinferior, posterosuperior, and posteroinferior were measured. The diameter of the middle meningeal vessel impression was measured using a flexible orthodontic wire. Results: The mean thickness of right parietal bone at the anterosuperior point is 1.24 ± 0.13 mm, anteroinferior point is 0.68 ± 0.21 mm, posterosuperior point is 1.38 ± 0.30 mm, and posteroinferior point is 0.89 ± 0.37 mm. The mean thickness of left parietal bone at anterosuperior, anteroinferior, posterosuperior, and posteroinferior points is 1.10 ± 0.39 mm, 0.69 ± 0.31 mm, 1.23 ± 0.52 mm, and 1.12 ± 0.44 mm, respectively. The average diameter of middle meningeal vessels (MMV) is 1.53 ± 0.71 mm on the right parietal bone and 1.48 ± 0.99 mm on the left parietal bone. Conclusion: Morphometric values and distributions of the branching patterns of MMV, as well as anatomical relationships between vessels and bones, were described to provide information concerning the arrangement of the endocranial vascular architecture. The present study shows no obvious correlation between the parietal bone thickness and the diameter of meningeal vessels.
