Hearing Preservation in 2.7 cm Vestibular Schwannoma
Hearing preservation is exceedingly diffi cult in vestibular schwannoma surgery, especially with
increasing tumor size. We herein report a case of hearing preservation in a 2.7 cm vestibular
schwannoma, where the patient maintained her pre-operative hearing threshold of 55 dB till a year
after surgery. Hence, it appears that an attempt at hearing preservation is worth pursuing.
Key Words: hearing preservation, tumor size, vestibular schwannoma
