Abstract

Patients consider facial paralysis the most concerning sequelae following acoustic tumor resection. Surgical and anesthetic refinements have lowered operative mortality to allow the surgeon to focus on preserving facial nerve function. Tumor size, microsurgical technique, and intraoperative monitoring are the most important factors that define the risk of postoperative facial paralysis. A protocol for uniform surgical reporting is proposed.
