THE Journal of Neurosurgery and the Archives of Otolaryngology have collaborated in their August issues by publishing critiques on the transtemporal bone microsurgical approach to acoustic neuromas. The neurosurgeon's views are presented by Ernest Sachs, MD, professor of neurosurgery at Dartmouth Medical School, while the otolaryngologist's view is presented by Wesley H. Bradley, MD, of Syracuse University Medical School. An abstract of Dr. Bradley's critique and the original critique by Dr. Sachs appear in this month's Journal of Neurosurgery, while Dr. Bradley's original critique and the critique by Dr. Sachs are in this issue of the Archives.
These two critiques appearing simultaneously in sister journals constitute an informative sequel to the historic monograph in the December 1964 issue of the Archives of Otolaryngology and to the subsequent course and conference conducted by William House, MD, and his associates at St. Vincent's Hospital, Feb 15-18, 1965, sponsored by the University
