Translabyrinthine resection of small intracanalicular acoustic tumor

Free access

This case is an example of a translabyrinthine resection of a small intracanalicular acoustic tumor. The patient is a 69-year-old right-handed woman with complaints of progressive incapacitating vertigo and right-sided hearing loss worsening over the past 3 years. She had normal facial nerve function with imaging demonstrating progressive increase in size of a small right-sided acoustic tumor. A translabyrinthine approach was performed, and the mass was resected completely. Facial nerve function remained normal immediately after surgery.
