From a series of 38 patients with tumors in the vicinity of the VIIIth nerve, 13 patients with tumors larger than 2 cm had abnormal BAEP results contralateral to the involved side. The abnormalities observed on the noninvolved side included prolonged peak latencies, reduced amplitudes, poor wave shape and poor response… CONTINUE READING
