There is a growing body of studies regarding the effects of Gamma Knife radiosurgery on vestibular schwannomas. However, due to their rare presence and variability, our experience with the management of non-vestibular schwannomas is relatively limited. Management strategies include radiological monitoring, microsurgical resection, microsurgery combined with radiosurgery, or upfront radiosurgery. The lack of large series and heterogeneous data makes it difficult to suggest a definitive treatment strategy and management should be tailored for each patient's radiological and clinical characteristics. Available data suggest that stereotactic radiosurgery, alone or combined with microsurgery, led to good outcomes with relatively low complication rates and constitutes an efficient treatment modality for patients with non-vestibular schwannomas.

This study reviewed our experience in treating patients with vestibular schwannoma (VS) who had acute sensorineural hearing loss (ASHL) early after radiosurgery.
The use of Gamma Knife radiosurgery (GKRS) for recurrent or residual Vestibular schwannoma (VS) after microsurgery (MS) has been investigated in several retrospective studies. The purpose of this stud...
Vestibular schwannomas usually originate in the internal acoustic meatus, and gradually extends into the cerebellopontine cistern. Invasive growth into the petrous bone is extremely rare. We describe ...
Tumor factors that influence vestibular function in vestibular schwannoma (VS) have not been properly described. We evaluated whether cystic VSs have different vestibular function than solid VS. Tumor...
Vestibular schwannoma is a benign tumor located on the vestibular nerve. Patient could present dizziness symptoms cause to the tumor, and at least after the treatment by gamaknife radiosur...
The aim of this study is to assess effect of psychiatric profile on visual sensitivity and overall health status in patients who underwent surgery for vestibular schwannoma and were prehab...
Surgical removal of vestibular schwannoma causes acute vestibular symptoms, including postoperative vertigo and oscilopsia due to nystagmus. In general, the dominant symptom postoperativel...
Previous studies have shown that vertigo is the symptoms that mostly affect quality of life in patients with vestibular schwannoma. There is still limited knowledge as to why some patients...
Treatment of vertigo after removal of a tumor of the balance and hearing nerve. This trial explores the efficacy and safety of AM-125 in the treatment of acute vertigo. In this proof of c...
A benign SCHWANNOMA of the eighth cranial nerve (VESTIBULOCOCHLEAR NERVE), mostly arising from the vestibular branch (VESTIBULAR NERVE) during the fifth or sixth decade of life. Clinical manifestations include HEARING LOSS; HEADACHE; VERTIGO; TINNITUS; and FACIAL PAIN. Bilateral acoustic neuromas are associated with NEUROFIBROMATOSIS 2. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p673)
The vestibular part of the 8th cranial nerve (VESTIBULOCOCHLEAR NERVE). The vestibular nerve fibers arise from neurons of Scarpa's ganglion and project peripherally to vestibular hair cells and centrally to the VESTIBULAR NUCLEI of the BRAIN STEM. These fibers mediate the sense of balance and head position.
Vestibular nucleus lying immediately superior to the inferior vestibular nucleus and composed of large multipolar nerve cells. Its upper end becomes continuous with the superior vestibular nucleus. (From Dorland, 28th ed)
Pathological processes of the VESTIBULAR LABYRINTH which contains part of the balancing apparatus. Patients with vestibular diseases show instability and are at risk of frequent falls.
The 8th cranial nerve. The vestibulocochlear nerve has a cochlear part (COCHLEAR NERVE) which is concerned with hearing and a vestibular part (VESTIBULAR NERVE) which mediates the sense of balance and head position. The fibers of the cochlear nerve originate from neurons of the SPIRAL GANGLION and project to the cochlear nuclei (COCHLEAR NUCLEUS). The fibers of the vestibular nerve arise from neurons of Scarpa's ganglion and project to the VESTIBULAR NUCLEI.
