Activity Description

Acoustic neuromas are tumors that develop from the sheath of Schwann cells. They tend to occupy the cerebellopontine angle and are usually found adjacent to the cochlear or vestibular nerve, either intracranially or extra-axially. This activity reviews the etiology, evaluation, and management of acoustic neuromas and highlights the collaboration among the interprofessional team in caring for patients with this condition.


Target Audience

This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of physicians, physician associates, nurses, pharmacists, and nurse practitioners.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, the learner will be better able to:

  • Identify the signs and symptoms of acoustic neuromas, such as gradual hearing loss, tinnitus, and balance problems.
  • Assess the size, location, and growth rate of acoustic neuromas to determine the appropriate treatment approach.
  • Utilize various treatment modalities, including surgical resection, stereotactic radiosurgery, or medical management, to develop individualized treatment plans for patients with acoustic neuromas.
  • Collaborate with a multidisciplinary team, including neurosurgeons, radiation oncologists, audiologists, and rehabilitation specialists, to provide comprehensive care and optimize patient outcomes.
