Abstract

To analyze the effect of Gamma Knife radiosurgery (GKS) on tumor control and hearing preservation rates in patients with vestibular schwannomas (VS) in a setting of neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF 2), a retrospective study was carried out at a tertiary-level referral Gamma Knife unit. Dose plans, pre- and postoperative radiology, and follow-up clinical records of patients with NF 2 who had undergone GKS for VS using a Leksell Gamma Knife (Elekta Instruments AB, Stockholm, Sweden) model B unit from 1997 to 2008 were reviewed.
