Long-term outcomes of facial nerve schwannomas with favorable facial nerve function: tumor growth rate is correlated with initial tumor size.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE The study aimed to report long-term outcomes of facial nerve schwannomas (FNS) with favorable facial nerve function by observation, and to discuss about the relationship between initial tumor size and tumor growth. METHODS 21 facial nerve schwannoma cases with favorable facial nerve function were managed by observation. They were divided into… (More)
