Gene context of Cerebellopontine Angle

  • They were examined in three groups according to the anatomical location of the lesion: Group A included 15 patients with midline tumors; Group B included 14 patients with cerebellar hemispheric tumors; and Group C included 11 patients with cerebellopontine angle (CPA) tumors [21].
  • Cerebellopontine angle involvement by nasopharyngeal carcinoma [22].
  • We evaluated the feasibility of MR cisternography by the balanced fast-field-echo (bFFE) sequence, comparing with that by a turbo-spin-echo (TSE) sequence, for cerebellopontine angle lesions on a 1.5-T imager (Gyroscan Intera, Philips, Best, The Netherlands) [23].
  • 53 patients clinically suspected of having a cerebellopontine angle (CPA) lesion were examined by computer tomography (CT) with 160 X 160 matrix EMI scanner [24].
  • This paper reviews 180 cerebellopontine angle lesions in regard to results and complications of the surgical management with special emphasis on the diagnosis, surgical removal, and results in 60 large (4 cm. or greater) tumors of the CPA [25].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of Cerebellopontine Angle

  • Other indications include hearing and visual evaluation, especially in neonates, diagnosis of brainstem and cerebellopontine angle tumours, monitoring the integrity of sensory function during surgery for scoliosis or neurosurgical procedures and differentiating toxic or metabolic causes of coma from irreversible structural lesions [26].
