The enlarged middle cranial fossa approach was used for removal of acoustic neuromas in 209 cases. Complete tumor removal was accomplished in 96% of cases. Hearing was preserved in 51% of cases, with better results in smaller tumors. Our experience with the enlarged middle fossa approach has led us to discard the translabyrinthine approach for removal of acoustic neuromas.
