Modern microsurgical strategies have spread out a brand new horizon for the otoneurosurgeon. This quantity is a vital contribu­ tion to the scholar who's studying those surgical ways. Surgical otoneurology has now handed the infancy level, yet continues to be a youngster. As extra otologists and neurosurgeons turn into expert during this kind of surgical procedure, new and higher methods will evolve. definitely there has to be far better administration of the carotid artery because it passes during the temporal bone. higher concepts to maintain the IX, X, and XI nerves within the jugular bulb sector could be built, and extra tender strategies for administration of lesions contained in the cochlea and vestibular labyrinth will be constructed. As our diagnostic strategies have greater, quite via imaging, surgical suggestions to check the enhanced diagnostic thoughts will emerge. For destiny otoneurologists who're pre­ pared, many difficulties concerning the temporal bone which are now thought of untreatable can be effectively controlled for terribly thankful sufferers. the aim of this article is to familiarize the otoneurosur­ geon with the anatomy of the temporal bone, cranium base, infratem­ poral fossa, and cerebellopontine attitude. This anatomy may be taught through demonstrating surgeries. This atlas that is an instance of cooperation among the universities of la and Verona will allow the reader to rehearse otoneurosurgical strategies within the laboratory, and, whilst the suggestions were mastered, practice many of the methods within the therapy of internal ear and cranium base lesions.

Example text

Follow the labyrinthine facial into the lAC. The lAC can be blue-lined now for positive identification. One must proceed with bone removal around the IAe. A diamond burr is used to create a trough anteriorly and posteriorly to the lAC until 270 degrees of bone have been removed from around the lAC. As one nears the porus medially, one is afforded more room. Near the lateral end of the lAC, keep in mind the location of the superior canal in order to avoid inadvertent fenestration. M. For acoustic tumor removal, it is necessary to carry bone removal to the porus.

H. Viewing the eighth nerve under 10x or 16x usually shows a difference in coloration between the vestibular (superior) and cochlear (inferior) portions of the nerve. A vessel often accompanies the cleavage plane. The vestibular portion is sectioned by first cutting into the superior aspect of the nerve with a scissors, and then gently feathering through the fibers with a sharp hook. When a complete section has been achieved, the cut ends of the nerve usually spring apart. One must keep in mind the facial nerve which lies deep to the eighth nerve, and AICA which often lies between seven and eight.

Continue rolling the gutted tumor away from the facial. Dissection is always most difficult at the porus and it is here where the facial is likely to be injured. Positive identification of the facial at the porus is critical in order to minimize the chance for injury. E. The facial is relocated at the end of the lAC and traced toward the porus. The tumor remaining at the porus is removed by staying within the plane of the facial and the tumor with a blunt hook. This dissection is tedious but well worth the effort to preserve facial nerve function.
