Subtotal Resection of Large Acoustic Neuromas With Possible Stereotactic Radiation Therapy
Trial ID or NCT#
The investigators study is to investigate safety and efficacy of performing a planned incomplete removal of large acoustic neuroma tumors to decrease surgical morbidity and yet avoid tumor recurrence by post-operative radiation therapy.
Multicenter Prospective Analysis of Treatment Outcome in Patients With Large Acoustic Neuromas
- - Adult patients with acoustic neuromas the widest diameter of 2.5 cm or larger at the cerebellopontine angle are eligible for this trial. - Patients that are deemed good surgical candidates based on age, general health, genetic predispositions, and hearing in contralateral side would be included as the subjects of this trial. - Although we would include patients with neurofibromatosis II in this trial, considering their genetic predisposition for recurrence, we would analyze their outcome as a separate group.
- - Patients who have received any form of treatment of their acoustic neuromas prior to enrollment in the study including surgery or radiation therapy.
