  Dr. Koop - Acoustic Neurinoma- Health Encyclopedia and Reference
Acoustic neurinoma is a benign tumor that may develop on the hearing and balance nerves near the inner ear.
Early diagnosis of an acoustic neurinoma is key to preventing its serious consequences.
If an acoustic neurinoma is removed surgically when it is still very small, hearing may be preserved and accompanying symptoms may go away.

 Neurinoma Acústico | terra
El neurinoma acústico, también denominado neuroma acústico o schwannoma vestibular, es un tumor no canceroso que puede desarrollarse a partir de la sobreproducción de células de Schwann, las cuales hacen presión sobre los nervios de la audición y el equilibrio en el oído interno.
Los neurinomas acústicos bilaterales - afectan ambos oídos y son hereditarios, causados por una alteración genética llamada neurofibromatosis-2 (NF2).
Puesto que los síntomas de los neurinomas acústicos son similares a otras condiciones del oído medio e interno, pueden ser difíciles de diagnosticar.

 Acoustic Neurinoma - Sharp HealthCare in San Diego
Acoustic neurinoma, also referred to as acoustic neuroma or vestibular schwannoma, is a non-cancerous tumor that may develop from an overproduction of Schwann cells that press on the hearing and balance nerves in the inner ear.
Acoustic neurinoma may be the result of gene damage caused by environmental factors.
Because symptoms of acoustic neurinomas resemble other middle and inner ear conditions, they may be difficult to diagnose.

An acoustic neurinoma is a benign tumor which may develop on the hearing and balance nerves near the inner ear.
Unilateral acoustic neurinomas affect only one ear and account for approximately 8 percent of all tumors inside the skull.
For individuals with unilateral acoustic neurinoma, however, some scientists hypothesize that this gene somehow loses its ability to function properly as a result of environmental factors.

 Acoustic neurinoma
The acoustic neurinoma is also known as vestibular schwannoma.
The most typical symptom of the acoustic neurinoma is impaired hearing that develops gradually over several years.
Once the acoustic neurinoma has been diagnosed, treatment based on symptoms and their consequent problems are carefully considered, because there is always the risk of deafness as a result of surgical treatment of the tumour.

There are two types of acoustic neurinoma: unilateral and bilateral.
Both types of acoustic neurinoma occur following a loss of the function of a gene on chromosome 22.

 INTERPHONE Study   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
The first results of analyses of risk of acoustic neurinoma risk in relation to use of mobile telephones in the Swedish part of INTERPHONE were published on 13 September 2004 in Epidemiology http://www.epidem.com/ Lönn, Stefan; Ahlbom, Anders; Hall, Per; Feychting, Maria; Mobile Phone Use and the Risk of Acoustic Neuroma.
The study included 148 cases of incident acoustic neurinoma, diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 60 in 1999-2002 in some parts of Sweden and 604 controls, matched on sex, age and residential area.
When restricting to tumours on the same side of the head as the phone was normally used (the side of the head where radio-frequency exposure from the phones is expected to be highest), the relative risk increased to 3.9 (1.6-9.5), based on 12 exposed cases.

Facial nerve neurinomas are relatively rare and most of them appear at the vertical portion of the facial nerve.
The most frequent symptom of facial nerve neurinoma in the temporal bone is facial nerve palsy, but that of facial nerve neurinoma in the c-p angle cistern is hearing loss, as in an acoustic neurinoma.
Preoperative diagnosis of facial neurinoma in the c-p angle cistern using neurological symptoms alone is difficult.

With more than 50,000 new cases per year worldwide, acoustic neurinomas are among the most commonly observed skull base tumors.
Written by Dr. Mario Sanna and colleagues, among the world's leading experts in acoustic neurinoma surgery, the book begins with sections on the radiographic assessment of tumors, the selection of surgical approach, and preoperative preparation.
The book then turns to the main surgical approaches, using hundreds of superb photographs - taken during actual surgery - to lead the physician through each procedure in step-by-step detail.
