  • [Title] Cerebellopontine cistern: microanatomy applied to vestibular schwannomas.
  • The microanatomy of the cerebellopontine cistern (CPC) is of interest to many surgeons and has been the subject of controversial works especially concerning the study of the subarachnoid space in the internal acoustic meatus (IAM).
  • The CPC lies in the cerebellopontine angle between the brainstem, cerebellum and petrous bone.
  • The glossopharyngeal, vagus and accessory nerves are located in the inferior part of the cerebellopontine angle close to the vertebral artery and the posteroinferior cerebellar artery.
  • The anatomy of the meningeal layers within the IAM is discussed especially concerning 'the arachnoidal cleavage plane' in acoustic neuroma surgery.

  • OBJECTIVE: To determine the incidence and characteristics of hyperventilation-induced nystagmus (HIN) in cerebellopontine angle (CPA) tumors and unilateral peripheral vestibulopathy (UPV), and to elucidate differential contribution of hyperventilation to bring out vestibular asymmetry between acute and chronic phases of UPV.
  • The patients with i-HIN and acoustic neuroma had a tendency to harbor smaller tumors and to have less severe caloric asymmetry.
  • Our study demonstrates that hyperventilation-induced nystagmus (HIN) beating to the side of reduced caloric response, hearing impairment, or abnormal auditory brainstem response responses may be a valuable sign for bedside detection of cerebellopontine angle (CPA) tumors.

  • [Title] Cerebellopontine angle tumors causing hemifacial spasm: types, incidence, and mechanism in nine reported cases and literature review.
  • OBJECTIVE: Although hemifacial spasm is usually caused by vascular compression around the root exit zone of the facial nerve, it is sometimes brought on by a cerebellopontine angle tumor.
  • We reviewed and analyzed data from past experience with hemifacial spasm induced by cerebellopontine angle tumors.
  • METHODS: Nine patients of a total 2,050, who had presented with hemifacial spasms associated with cerebellopontine angle tumors between 1986 and 2009, were reviewed.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Each type of tumor had different characteristics with respect to the induction of hemifacial spasm; therefore, it is suggested that neurosurgeons, who are planning surgeries both for the purposes of relieving hemifacial spasm and removal of cerebellopontine angle tumor, should thoroughly prepare appropriate approaches and specific dissecting strategies according to each causative lesion.

  • [Title] The role of endoscopic third ventriculostomy in the management of hydrocephalus associated with cerebellopontine angle tumours.
  • BACKGROUND: Progressive hydrocephalus secondary to cerebellopontine angle tumours has been traditionally managed with ventriculo-peritoneal shunting.
  • METHODS: We report a retrospective series of 11 patients with cerebello-pontine angle tumours who presented with symptomatic hydrocephalus, or developed hydrocephalus following radiosurgery, who underwent endoscopic third ventriculostomy.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Endoscopic third ventriculostomy is a low morbidity procedure, which avoids the inherent problems of shunts, particularly infection and should be considered for patients with hydrocephalus and cerebello-pontine angle tumours.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Evaluation of cost effectiveness for conservative and active management strategies for acoustic neuroma.
  • OBJECTIVE: To determine whether economic costs associated with a conservative management strategy for unilateral acoustic neuroma offer an economic advantage over active management options.
  • PARTICIPANTS: 72 patients (32 males, 40 females) aged 36 to 78 years with unilateral acoustic neuroma were assigned initially to a conservative management strategy.
  • Entry criteria were small tumour size (less than 15 mm in the cerebellopontine angle), patient preference and/or significant co-morbidity.
  • CONCLUSION: An economic advantage can be demonstrated for the conservative management of acoustic neuromas compared to microsurgical removal and gamma knife radiotherapy on the proviso that no increase in active treatment complications arose from continued tumour growth during the period of observation.

  • The purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence of acoustic neuroma associated with each configuration of the pure tone audiogram in patients with asymmetric sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL).
  • RESULTS: The prevalence of acoustic neuroma in these patients was 2.6% (13 of 500).
  • The prevalence of acoustic neuroma in each audiometric configuration was as follows: 7.1% (3 of 42) for a basin-shaped loss (odds ratio [OR] versus overall prevalence, 2.88; p = 0.23; 95% confidence interval [CI], 0.79 to 10.54), 4.7% (5 of 107) for a flat loss, 3.4% (2 of 58) for total deafness, 2.9% (1 of 34) for a high-frequency sloping audiogram, and 2.5% (2 of 81) for a high-frequency steep audiogram.
  • CONCLUSIONS: In conclusion, 2.9% to 8.1% of patients with a characteristic configuration of the pure tone audiogram and symptoms of nonimproving or progressive idiopathic sudden deafness may have acoustic neuroma.

  • [Title] The role of magnetic resonance imaging in the identification of suspected acoustic neuroma: a systematic review of clinical and cost effectiveness and natural history.
  • OBJECTIVE(S): To evaluate the clinical effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of a range of diagnostic strategies for investigating patients with unilateral hearing loss and/or tinnitus, with a view to confirming or eliminating a diagnosis of acoustic neuroma, and to describe the natural history of acoustic neuroma.
  • ABR has high sensitivity compared with MR imaging for acoustic neuromas greater than 1 cm in size but not for smaller neuromas.
  • Non-contrast-enhanced MR imaging was found to be a more cost-effective test for acoustic neuroma than GdT1W MR imaging.
  • The incidence of acoustic neuroma has increased over the last 30 years, with the median age at diagnosis remaining at 55 years.
  • The pattern and rate of growth of acoustic neuroma are highly variable and currently unpredictable.
  • Given the recent improvement in resolution and reduction in cost of MR imaging, ABR can no longer be considered appropriate as the primary test used to screen for acoustic neuroma.
  • T2W or T2*W sequences enable accurate evaluation of the VIIIth and VIIth cranial nerves within the cerebellopontine angle and internal auditory canal as well as evaluation of the cochlea and labyrinth, and inclusion of GdT1W sequences is unlikely to contribute information that would alter patient management in the screening population.
  • Based on a cost-effectiveness model developed to reflect UK practice it was concluded that a diagnostic algorithm that deploys non-contrast MR imaging as an initial imaging screen in the investigation of acoustic neuroma is less costly than and likely to be as effective as available contrast MR imaging.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Carcinomatous meningitis appearing as acoustic neuromas: two cases.
  • BACKGROUND: For acoustic neuromas, stereotactic radiotherapy (radiosurgery or stereotactic fractionated radiotherapy) has been established as an important alternative to microsurgery.
  • If medical history does not match with acoustic neuroma, further diagnostics are necessary to rule out infectious disease or carcinomatous meningitis.
  • CASE REPORT: Two patients with hearing loss, vertigo and the diagnosis of acoustic neuromas by MRI scan were referred for radiotherapy.
  • In both cases the symptoms progressed very rapidly, not typical of acoustic neuromas, and in both patients repeated liquor puncture finally revealed carcinomatous meningitis.
  • This is especially true for bilateral lesions suspicious for acoustic neuromas and rapid progression and persistence of clinical symptoms where carcinomatous meningitis has to be taken into account.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Treatment of a facial nerve neuroma with fractionated stereotactic radiotherapy.
  • BACKGROUND: Facial nerve neuromas are extremely rare and are often mistaken for acoustic neuromas when located near the vestibular nerve.
  • Usually presenting with facial weakness and hearing loss, facial nerve neuromas of the cerebellopontine angle have commonly been managed by surgery.
  • We present the first reported case of a facial nerve neuroma treated with fractionated stereotactic radiotherapy (FSRT).
  • She underwent a middle fossa craniotomy only to reveal a facial nerve tumor rather than an acoustic neuroma that was not resected due to the high risk of facial paralysis.
  • CONCLUSION: In the first report of a facial nerve neuroma treated with FSRT, this treatment resulted in excellent long-term (4-year) tumor control with improvement of pretreatment symptomatology and absence of morbidity.
  • This report demonstrates the potential for using FSRT to treat facial nerve neuromas of the cerebellopontine angle that could otherwise be associated with significant operative morbidity.

  • The middle fossa approach is useful for the removal of small acoustic tumors when hearing preservation is possible.
  • Because access to the posterior fossa is limited, the middle fossa approach is most appropriate for tumors with less than 5 mm extension into the cerebellopontine angle.
  • With the introduction of gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging, very small acoustic tumors are diagonosed more frequently, and the middle fossa approach is well-suited for the removal of these tumors.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Acoustic neuromas after failed radiation therapy: challenges of surgical salvage.
  • OBJECTIVES: As stereotactic radiation has emerged as a treatment option for acoustic neuromas, cases that require surgical salvage after unsuccessful radiation have emerged.
  • We present a comparison of the technical challenges faced by the surgeons in the treatment of irradiated versus nonirradiated acoustic neuromas.
  • METHODS: We identified nine patients with acoustic neuromas that required surgical resection after radiation therapy.
  • Decompression of the internal auditory canal (IAC) dura and resection of neoplasm in the IAC before cerebellopontine angle dissection was required for facial nerve identification.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Surgical salvage of acoustic neuromas after radiation therapy is feasible, but it presents technical challenges beyond that associated with primary surgical therapy.
  • As surgical experience with the irradiated acoustic neuroma grows, operative observations should be incorporated into the counsel provided to patients with acoustic neuromas as they weigh different management options.

  • [Title] [Dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging findings of mass lesions of the pontocerebellar angle].
  • OBJECTIVES: The differential diagnosis of mass lesions of the pontocerebellar angle is not always possible by conventional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
  • In this study, we investigated the role of dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI in the differential diagnosis of acoustic neurinoma, meningioma, and paraganglioma.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Twelve patients (8 females, 4 males; mean age 47.5 years; range 8 to 71 years) whose diagnoses were acoustic neurinoma (n=3), paraganglioma (n=5), and meningioma (n=4) were evaluated by simultaneous conventional and dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI.
  • RESULTS: According to the four main time-signal intensity curve patterns described in the literature, acoustic neurinomas, meningiomas, and paragangliomas exhibited type C, type A-B, and type A curve patterns, respectively.
  • CONCLUSION: Our results suggest that dynamic contrast MRI may have an additional but limited role in the differential diagnosis of extra-axial intracranial tumors such as those of the pontocerebellar angle.

  • Thirteen patients with acoustic neurinomas were investigated.
  • The VOR gain measured from all patients (including those with tumors extending to the cerebellopontine angle) was not significantly different when the patients were subjected to EVAR and OVAR.
  • We concluded that certain stimulating parameters--patient's nose tilted up 30 degrees; sinusoidal OVAR at 0.8 Hz and 60 degrees /s maximum angular head velocity--were useful for evaluating vestibular function in patients suffering from an acoustic neurinoma located within the internal auditory canal.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Acoustic neuromas following childhood radiation treatment for benign conditions of the head and neck.
  • Childhood radiation exposure has been associated with an increased risk for developing several neoplasms, particularly benign and malignant thyroid tumors, but little is known about the risk of developing acoustic neuromas.
  • The aim of this study was to confirm whether there is a risk for acoustic neuromas and, if so, to determine its magnitude and duration.
  • We investigated the time trend and dose-response relationships for acoustic neuroma incidence in a cohort of 3,112 individuals who were irradiated as children between 1939 and 1962.
  • Most of the patients were treated to reduce the size of their tonsils and adenoids and received substantial radiation exposure to the cerebellopontine angle, the site of acoustic neuromas.
  • Forty-three patients developed benign acoustic neuromas, forty of them surgically resected, far in excess of what might be expected from data derived from brain tumor registries.
  • The mean dose (+/-SD) to the cerebellopontine angle was 4.6 +/- 1.9 Gy.
  • Our study provides support for an association between acoustic neuromas and childhood radiation exposure.
  • Although acoustic neuromas are usually benign and often asymptomatic, many cause significant morbidity.
  • Any symptoms of an acoustic neuroma in a patient with a history of radiation to the head and neck area should be investigated carefully, and the threshold for employing imaging should be lowered.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • SUBJECTS: Fourteen healthy volunteers and four patients with unilateral cerebellopontine angle tumors were enrolled in this study.
  • Four patients with unilateral cerebellopontine angle tumors and prolonged latencies of unilateral clicks vestibular-evoked myogenic potentials also showed latency prolongation in bilateral clicks vestibular-evoked myogenic potentials.
  • CONCLUSION: Although the use of bilateral acoustic stimulation shortens the vestibular-evoked myogenic potential latencies in normal subjects, it does not affect the bilateral clicks vestibular-evoked myogenic potential ability to detect retrolabyrinthine lesions.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • OBJECTIVE: Although enormous attention has been directed to the localization and preservation of the facial nerve in acoustic neuroma surgery, the nervus intermedius has largely been ignored.
  • PATIENTS: Thirty-three patients who underwent intraoperative facial nerve monitoring for various cerebellopontine angle procedures.
  • CONCLUSION: Knowledge of electrophysiologic features of nervus intermedius stimulation can help protect the facial nerve during cerebellopontine angle surgery.
  • The surgeon must recognize that stimulation of the nervus intermedius can cause electromyographic activity in the facial nerve monitoring channels, but the main trunk of the facial nerve may lie in entirely different location in the cerebellopontine angle.
