abstract

  • Stereotactic radiosurgery is a safe and effective management modality for neurofibromatosis Type 2 vestibular schwannomas. Although results do not seem to be as good as for patients with sporadic unilateral tumors, gamma knife radiosurgery results seem favorable and indicate that radiosurgery should be strongly considered for primary tumor management in selected patients.
