Cochlear implantation (CI) has become an option for the treatment of hearing loss after translabyrinthine resection of vestibular schwannomas. The surgical video presents the case of a 67-year-old male who had translabyrinthine resection of vestibular schwannoma with simultaneous CI and closure with a hydroxyapatite (HA) cement cranioplasty. HA cement cranioplasty can be utilized in place of abdominal fat graft for the closure of translabyrinthine approaches with similar efficacy and complication profile. To the authors’ knowledge, this is the first reported case of a simultaneous CI and translabyrinthine resection of vestibular schwannoma with HA cement cranioplasty.
