OBJECTIVE Endoscopes have been increasingly used during neurosurgical procedures. Previously, they have been shown to offer better visualization than the microscope in selected situations and frequently have allowed less invasive surgery. This study was undertaken to determine whether endoscopy is safe and effective during suboccipital surgery for vestibular schwannomas. METHODS Ten patients with vestibular schwannomas underwent suboccipital transmeatal craniotomies for tumor excision… CONTINUE READING
