Abstract

The standard translabyrinthine approach for acoustic neuromas removal was introduced by W. House in 1964. After several years of experience the original translabyrinthine approach has been progressively modified into the current "enlarged" approach by extending the area of bone removal. This increased surgical field has made the translabyrinthine approach suitable for the removal of tumours of all sizes. We present our serie of 71 large (52) and giant (19) neuromas of the VIIIth nerve removed through a translabyrinthine approach between 1993 and 1998 at the ENT Department of Legnano.
