AbstractOBJECT: Despite advances in microsurgical techniques, complete surgical resection of large acoustic neuroma is still associated with significant morbidity related to facial palsy. By modifying the techniques of microsurgery and combined it with planned post-operative radiosurgery, the authors aimed to reduce the incidence of permanent facial nerve palsy to near zero in a prospective study. METHODS: Between 2000 and 2011, 54 large (Koo’s classification stage 4) acoustic neuromas (AN), were managed by the senior authors with planned microsurgery (MS) followed by Gamma Knife surgery (GKS). Mean tumor volume before MS was 17.6 cc (4.9 - 44.5). Mean follow up time was 70 months with minimum 3 years follow up. The authors adhered …
