Ultrasonography, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging were performed to differentiate preoperatively between schwannomas of the vagus nerve and schwannomas of the cervical sympathetic chain by observing the position of schwannomas in regard to the surrounding blood vessels. Ultrasonography also permitted direct visualization of the vagus nerve, so its position relative to the schwannoma could be examined. In schwannomas of the vagus nerve the schwannoma grew between the common… CONTINUE READING
