The most common surgical procedures used to reach this anatomical district are the MCF approach and the translabyrinthine approach
. These techniques remain the gold standard, and it is necessary to know them to approach innovative techniques.
was used to excise the tumour.
for acoustic tumor removal.
The patient underwent successful surgical resection via an extended translabyrinthine approach
with features of a jugular foramen approach.
During the sixties and seventies, Mirko pioneered the new principles of middle ear surgery in Denmark and established his reputation when he, in 1976, was the first surgeon in modern times to remove an acoustic neuroma through the translabyrinthine approach
The translabyrinthine approach
does not preserve hearing, while the retrosigmoid approach might.
The right VS was removed with a translabyrinthine approach
that resulted in total hearing loss on the same side.
Although we recommended open surgery via a translabyrinthine approach
, the patient refused it and refused gamma-knife treatment, as well.
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
. Injury of lower cranial nerves can occur after surgery for larger AN in 5.5% of the cases .
Exploration via a translabyrinthine approach
through a postauricular incision and standard mastoidectomy/ labyrinthectomy exposed a 1-cm intracanalicular tumor in the IAM.
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.
At surgery, 20 patients underwent tumor removal via a translabyrinthine approach
and 1 (patient 5) via a retrosigmoid (lateral suboccipital) approach.
