This monograph presents a succinct and comprehensive discussion of the authors' experience in the surgical management and results of total and subtotal removal of acoustic nerve tumors.
Stress is placed on early diagnosis and the close cooperation of the otolaryngologist, neurologist, radiologist, internist, and neurosurgeon so that more successful long-term postoperative results and even the preservation of hearing is achieved.
The monograph is based primarily on the authors' experience derived from 135 cases of acoustic nerve tumors. Their results are correlated with those of other neurosurgeons, such as Henschen, Cushing, Revilla, Edwards and Paterson, and Olivecrona.
There is a brief discussion of histogenesis, pathology, and related data such as age, sex, and laterabity. The various symptoms are coordinated. A detailed description of the various diagnostic procedures is presented. These include x-ray, encephalography, pneumoencephalography, ventriculography, arteriography, EEG., cerebrospinal fluid, audiometric and caloric tests.
A group of atypical cases are presented.
