HYPOTHESIS: The aim of this study is to objectively assess the quality and readability of websites related to vestibular schwannomas. BACKGROUND: Patients are increasingly seeking information on confirmed or suspected diagnoses through the Internet. Clinicians are often concerned regarding the accuracy, quality, and readability of web-based sites. METHODS: Online information relating to vestibular schwannoma was searched using the three most popular search engines...

The aim of this study was to determine the natural history of growth and quality of life (QoL) outcomes for vestibular schwannoma (VS) managed conservatively, and to validate the disease-specific Penn Acoustic Neuroma Quality-of-Life (PANQOL) scale in French language. We retrospectively studied 26 patients with VS managed conservatively. Patient characteristics and radiological findings were collected. Two scales were used to measure QoL: the Short Form-36 Health Survey (SF-36) and the PANQOL scale translated into French...

BACKGROUND: Monitoring the health-related quality of life (HRQOL) for patients with vestibular schwannoma (VS) has garnered increasing interest. In German-speaking countries, there is no disease-specific questionnaire available similar to the "Penn Acoustic Neuroma Quality-of-life Scale" (PANQOL). METHOD: We translated the PANQOL for German-speaking patients based on a multistep protocol that included not only a forward-backward translation but also linguistic and sociocultural adaptations...

OBJECTIVE Translabyrinthine resection is one of a number of treatment options available to patients with vestibular schwannomas. Though this procedure is hearing destructive, the authors have noted excellent clinical outcomes for patients with small tumors. The authors review their experience at a tertiary acoustic neuroma referral center in using the translabyrinthine approach to resect small vestibular schwannomas. All operations were performed by a surgical team consisting of a single neurosurgeon and 1 of 7 neurotologists...

Clinical guidelines are topical systematically developed provisions designed to help the doctor make a decision about a treatment approach in certain clinical situations; they provide information on conducting diagnostic and screening tests, the amount of medical and surgical care, and other aspects of clinical practice. Vestibular schwannomas account for 8% of all intracranial lesions, up to 30% of posterior cranial fossa tumors, and 85% of cerebellopontine angle tumors. The incidence rate of acoustic neuromas is approximately 1 case per 100000 population per year...

BACKGROUND: Vestibular schwannoma (VS) is a disease which might affect health-related quality of life (HR-QOL) in a negative manner. For many years, only generic quality of life instruments such as SF-36 were available to measure HR-QOL. However, some years ago, the Penn Acoustic Neuroma Quality Of Life (PANQOL) tool, a disease-specific instrument, was developed and validated. It is expected that the application of this instrument will be able to better assess relevant aspects of the HR-QOL of VS patients in the future...

BACKGROUND: It is common for patients with Neurofibromatosis type 2 to develop bilateral profound hearing loss hearing loss and this is one of the main determinants of quality of life in this patient group. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this systematic review was to review the current literature regarding hearing outcomes of treatments for vestibular schwannomas in neurofibromatosis type 2 including conservative and medical management, radiotherapy, hearing preservation surgery and auditory implantation in order to determine the most effective way of preserving or rehabilitating hearing Search Strategy: A MESH search in PubMed using search terms (("Neurofibromatosis 2"[Mesh]) AND "Neuroma, Acoustic"[Mesh]) AND "Hearing Loss"[Mesh] was performed...

Objective In vestibular schwannoma treatment, the choice among treatment modalities is controversial. The first aim of this study was to examine the quality of life of patients with vestibular schwannoma having undergone observation, radiation therapy, or microsurgical resection. The second aim was to examine the relationship between perceived symptoms and quality of life. Last, the association between quality of life and time since treatment was studied.

BACKGROUND: Assessment of the internal auditory canal (IAC) and cochlea is of central importance in neurotology. The artefacts and visibility of active auditory implants on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) vary because of their specific magnetic components. Knowledge of the size of MRI artefacts and the options for handling them is important for the auditory rehabilitation of specific diseases (e. g., vestibular schwannoma). METHODS: The current article is a literature review...

Neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF-2) is characterized by multifocal proliferation of neural crest-derived cells. The characteristics finding of NF-2 is bilateral vestibular schwannomas. Combined hamartoma of retina and retinal epithelium (CHRRPE) is another associated finding. A 9 year-old-male child presented with left eye decreased vision for 3 months. Visual acuity was 0.0 and 0.8 LogMAR in the right and left eye, respectively. Left fundus showed an elevated, pigmented lesion with surface wrinkling and vascular tortuosity suggestive of CHRRPE with multiple presumed retinal astrocytic proliferations in mid-periphery...

BACKGROUND: Assessment of the internal auditory canal (IAC) and the cochlea is of central importance in neurotology. The artefacts and visibility of the different types of active auditory implants in MRI vary, due to their specific ferromagnetic components. Knowledge of the size of MRI artefacts and the options for handling these is important for the auditory rehabilitation of specific diseases (e. g., vestibular schwannoma).

INTRODUCTION: Contralateral ear hearing loss (CHL) is an extremely rare but a potentially devastating complication in a patient with already compromised hearing due to a Vestibular schwannoma (VS). Our patient had CHL accompanied by contralateral facial palsy. Our case is only the second case reported in literature to the best of our knowledge.

Surgical approaches to vestibular schwannomas (VS) are widely known and extensively recorded. For the first time, an exclusive endoscopic approach to the internal acoustic canal (IAC) was described and used to safely remove a cochlear schwannoma involving IAC in March 2012. The aim of this article was to summarize indications and technique to treat intracanalicular VS by transcanal/transpromontorial endoscopic approach. Because management of intracanalicular VSs is complex and strongly debated, this kind of therapeutic option in the appropriate and selected cases could modify classic concepts of the management of this pathology...

It has been over 200 years since the acoustic neuroma(AN) was firstly reported. From simply describing its symptoms to the decline of surgical mortality, the protection of facial and acoustic nerve function, as well as the improvement of the patients' quality of life. Physicians made efforts on evolving the diagnostic techniques and treatment strategies, and a better understanding of AN's development. The current major managements of AN are microsurgery, stereotactic radiosurgery, and follow-up. We reviewed the AN's history and prospected its future managements...

BACKGROUND: The management of vestibular schwannoma is still a quite controversial issue and can include wait and see policy, surgery and radiotherapy, mainly with stereotactic technique. The purpose of this study is to review the results of recent clinical series treated by radiotherapy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Literature search was performed by Pubmed and Scopus by using the words "vestibular schwannoma, acoustic neuroma, radiotherapy, radiosurgery". RESULTS: Management options of VS include wait and see, surgery and radiotherapy...

UNLABELLED: GENERAL: Treatment of vestibular schwannoma (VS) via microsurgery, radiosurgery (SRS), or fractionated radiotherapy (FRT), is advocated for symptomatic patients or those with rapid tumor growth, despite older age and comorbidities. VS growth rate >2.5 mm/year is associated with lower hearing preservation rates. Regardless of growth rate, conservative management is associated with a progressive hearing loss, ranging 2.77-5.39 dB/year. MICROSURGERY: The retrosigmoid approach is associated with higher hearing preservation and facial nerve function rates for VS >1...
