Cerebellopontine angle Certain tumours arise in the cerebellopontine angle. They are:
Cerebellopontine angle The cerebellopontine angle is a structure at the margin of the cerebellum and pons.
Cerebellopontine angle Cerebello-pontine angle is the area of lateral cistern containing CSF, arachnoid tissue, cranial nerves, and associate vessels.
Cerebellopontine angle syndrome The auditory brainstem response (ABR) test gives information about the inner ear (cochlea) and nerve pathways for hearing via ongoing electrical activity in the brain measured by electrodes placed on the scalp. Five different waves (I to V) are measured for each ear. Each waveform represents specific anatomical points along the auditory neural pathway. Delays of one side relative to the other suggest a lesion in cranial nerve VIII between the ear and brainstem or in the brainstem itself. The most reliable indicator for acoustic neuromas from the ABR is the interaural latency differences in wave V: the latency in the impaired ear is prolonged. Different studies have indicated the sensitivity of ABR for detection of acoustic neuromas 1cm or larger to be between 90 and 95%. Sensitivity for neuromas smaller than 1cm are 63-77%. A newer technology, stacked ABR, may have sensitivity as high as 95% with specificity 88% for smaller tumors. ABR is considerably more cost effective, but MRI provides more information.
Cerebellopontine angle syndrome Tumors within the nerve canaliculi initially present with unilateral sensorineural hearing loss, unilateral tinnitus, or disequilibrium (vertigo is rare, on account of the slow growth of neuromas). Speech discrimination out of proportion to hearing loss, difficulty talking on the telephone are frequent accompaniments. Tumors extending into the CPA will likely present with disequilibrium or ataxia depending on the amount of extension on the brainstem. With brainstem extension, midfacial and corneal hypesthesia, hydrocephalus, and other cranial neuropathies become more prevalent.
Cerebellopontine angle syndrome Meningiomas are significantly more common in women than in men; they are most common in middle-aged women. Two predisposing factors associated with meningiomas for which at least some evidence exists are exposure to ionizing radiation (cancer treatment of brain tumors) and hormone replacement therapy.
Cerebellopontine angle syndrome Acoustic neuromas are managed by either surgery, radiation therapy, or observation with regular MRI scanning. With treatment, the likelihood of hearing preservation varies inversely with the size of the tumor; for large tumors, preservation of hearing is rare. Because acoustic neurmas, meningiomas and most other CPA tumors are benign, slow growing or non-growing, and non-invasive, observation is a viable management option.
Cerebellopontine angle syndrome Patients with larger tumours can develop Bruns nystagmus ('dancing eyes') due to compression of the flocculi.
Cerebellopontine angle syndrome Several different types of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) may be employed in diagnosis: MRI without contrast, Gd contrast enhanced T1-weighted MRI (GdT1W) or T2-weighted enhanced MRI (T2W or T2*W). Non-contrast enhanced MRI is considerably less expensive than any of the contrast enhanced MRI scans. The gold standard in diagnosis is GdT1W MRI.
Cerebellopontine angle syndrome The reliability of non-contrast enhanced MRI is highly dependent on the sequence of scans, and the experience of the operator.
