History and newer management strategies in acoustic neuroma management

International Conference and Exhibition on Otolaryngology

Richard J. Wiet

Keynote: Otolaryngology


Vesitbular schwannomas are the most common CPA tumor representing 6%-10% of intracranial neoplasm. Incidence is 10 per million per year in the US. NF2 represents about 5% of these CPA tumors. Among these cases 10% will present with normal hearing, and 90% will present with unilateral hearing loss and tinnitus. ABR is a noninvasive test for acoustic neuroma with a fairly high false potential rate. However, MRI is still the gold standard in diagnosis of tumors 2mm in size or larger. Three management strategies: observation, radiation, and surgery are the options for patients and each will be discussed on the basis of management of more than 1500 cases seen over a thirty year period. We will focus this talk on recent conservative trends in management of the acoustic neuroma patient in the past decade.
