Abstract

A 52-year-old woman with a diagnosis of left-sided vestibular schwannoma undergoes a craniotomy in sitting position for resection of this mass. The pathophysiology of CPA tumors is presented along with management options and considerations for surgical resection. Data for optimal preoperative evaluation and intraoperative management of CPA tumor resection is discussed. Potential intraoperative and postoperative complications of CPA tumor resection are discussed, as well as potential complications of sitting position craniotomy.
