This palsy occurred after removal of one larger (5 cm) tumor in a series of 300 AN that were operated on via the translabyrinthine approach
for acoustic tumor removal.
The patient underwent successful surgical resection via an extended translabyrinthine approach
with features of a jugular foramen approach.
Our objective in this study is to determine the reduction of rhinoliquorrhea rates by Eustachian tube (ET) obliteration in the context of a translabyrinthine approach
performed following vestibular schwannoma (VS) excision.
The translabyrinthine approach
does not preserve hearing, while the retrosigmoid approach might.
The tumor was radically resected by translabyrinthine approach
, preserving the vestibulocochlear and facial nerves.
Although we recommended open surgery via a translabyrinthine approach
, the patient refused it and refused gamma-knife treatment, as well.
Exploration via a translabyrinthine approach
through a postauricular incision and standard mastoidectomy/ labyrinthectomy exposed a 1-cm intracanalicular tumor in the IAM.
At surgery, 20 patients underwent tumor removal via a translabyrinthine approach
and 1 (patient 5) via a retrosigmoid (lateral suboccipital) approach.
a transverse fracture) and anakusis is present, a translabyrinthine approach
Among the 36 patients in the surgical group, the translabyrinthine approach
was used to treat 32 (88.
