The contralateral ear after translabyrinthine removal of acoustic neuromas: Is there a drill-noise generated hearing loss?

Abstract

To determine whether translabyrinthine acoustic surgery may result in a drill-generated, bone-conducted sensorineural hearing impairment in the contralateral ear, the audiograms from 50 consecutive patients with acoustic neuromas undergoing the translabyrinthine approach were compared before and three months after surgery. No case of sensorineural hearing impairment could be demonstrated post-operatively.
