OBJECT To evaluate the possible prognostic factors for hearing preservation, the authors retrospectively reviewed the results of 30 consecutive acoustic neuroma operations in which hearing preservation was attempted, in a total series of 63 acoustic neuromas. METHODS Intracanalicular tumors or those that extended less than 3 mm outside the porus acusticus… CONTINUE READING
