Abstract

Objectives To describe a retrosigmoid craniectomy, hearing-preservation approach for resection of vestibular schwannoma.

Design/Setting/Participants A video of a single patient undergoing the above approach at a tertiary care skull base surgery program.

Results This video demonstrates a retrosigmoid craniectomy approach for resection of an enlarging intracanalicular vestibular schwannoma in a patient with normal hearing. The video highlights the pertinent surgical anatomy and outlines in a step-by-step fashion the surgical steps. The patient obtained a gross total resection with preservation of hearing.

Conclusion A retrosigmoid craniectomy approach for vestibular schwannoma offers a potentially hearing preservation approach for selected tumors.
