BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to analyze complications of vestibular schwannoma (VS) microsurgery. MATERIAL AND METHODS A retrospective study was performed in 333 patients with unilateral vestibular schwannoma indicated for surgical treatment between January 1997 and December 2012. Postoperative complications were assessed immediately after VS(More)
We analyzed the effect of 2-week individualized visual feedback-based balance training on the postural control of patients undergoing retrosigmoid microsurgical removal of vestibular schwannoma. We performed prospective evaluation of 17 patients allocated into two groups: feedback group (9 patients, mean age 37 years) and standard physiotherapy group (8(More)
Seven patients, 5 months up to 7 years after closed injury of the brachial plexus, were stimulated in the wrist, elbow and axilla of the extremity affected in order to invistigate average somatosensory cerebral evoked potentials (SCEP). Avulsion of most of the roots C5-Thl from the spinal cord could be objectively proved. All available clinical, contrast(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to analyze the effect of vestibular schwannoma microsurgery via the retrosigmoid-transmeatal approach with special reference to the postoperative tinnitus outcome. MATERIAL AND METHODS A prospective study was performed in 89 consecutive patients with unilateral vestibular schwannoma indicated for microsurgery. Patient(More)
Our aim is to remove large vestibular schwannomas (VS) radically with minimal morbidity. Usually, these tumours cannot not be treated by irradiation. In the years 1997-2003, 69 VS were operated in the Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery of the First Medical Faculty in Prague, Czech Republic. Prevailing majority of these tumours were of(More)
BACKGROUND Auditory brainstem implant (ABI) is an electroprosthetic device enabling sound sensations in deaf persons with a bilateral lesion of auditory nerves. Stimulation of auditory nuclei in the floor of the IVth ventricle is realized by an electrode array introduced during surgery in the lateral recess of the IVth ventricle. METHODS AND RESULTS The(More)
Endoscopy-assisted microsurgery represents modern trend of treatment of the cerebellopontine angle (CPA) pathologies including vestibular schwannoma (VS). Endoscopes are used in adjunct to microscope to achieve better functional results with less morbidity. Angled optics, magnification and illumination enable superior view in the operative field.(More)
Skull base tumors and, in particular, vestibular schwannoma (VS) are among the etiological reasons for single-sided deafness (SSD). Patients with SSD have problems in understanding speech in a noisy environment and cannot localize the direction of sounds. For the majority, this is the handicap for which they try to find a solution. Apart from CROS hearing(More)
