Abstract

A deaf female patient was diagnosed with bilateral acoustic neurinomas. Diagnosis incorporated the standard audiological battery for sensorineural hearing loss, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. The left side had been operated on four years previously in another clinic using the suboccipital approach. The auditory brainstem implant surgery was performed on the ‘second side’ using the same approach. It was an uneventful operation with good anatomy and no serious post-operative complications. Post-operatively, the patient performed exceptionally well, with up to 50 per cent of words recognized in the opened set and 85 per cent in the closed set, both without lip-reading.
