OBJECTIVES: The aim of the present study was to investigate the relationships between tumor size, hearing, and vestibular outcomes in patients with vestibular schwannomas (VSs).

MATERIALS AND METHODS: Adult patients (n=124) with unilateral extrameatal VS prior to surgery were included in the study. This was a retrospective cohort study of preoperative audiovestibular investigations including audiometry, discrimination test, caloric test, cervical vestibular evoked myogenic potential (c-VEMP), and ocular vestibular evoked myogenic potential (o-VEMP).

RESULTS: The difference between lesioned and non-lesioned ear was significant for all audiovestibular outcomes. The mean caloric deficit was 74%. No tumor sided o-VEMPs were elicited. Caloric deficit correlated with hearing loss measured with pure tone average and discrimination score. c-VEMP deficit was significantly associated with severe hearing loss and larger tumors.

CONCLUSION: The presence of VS leads to a significant deterioration of audiovestibular function in all objective measures. Caloric test and o-VEMPS are sensitive though unspecific measures of VSs. Increasing tumor size is not directly associated with hearing loss and only somewhat to vestibular deficit. However, audiovestibular findings are correlated.
