Continuous spontaneous electromyographic activity and responses to electrical stimulation of the facial nerve in the surgical field were monitored in 48 patients undergoing primary removal of an acoustic neuroma. The operative and postoperative results in these patients were compared with the results in 48 patients who were matched for age and size of tumor and who underwent the same surgical procedure without intraoperative monitoring. Eighty-three percent of the patients had preoperative… CONTINUE READING
