Vestibular Schwannoma Surgery: Outcome and Complications in Lateral Decubitus Position versus Semi-sitting Position-A Personal Learning Curve in a Series of 544 Cases over 3 Decades.

Abstract:

OBJECTIVE:To retrospectively evaluate influence of intraoperative positioning (semisitting vs. lateral decubitus) and surgeon's learning curve with regard to functional outcome of patients with vestibular schwannoma. METHODS:This study included 544 patients (median age 57 years) and spanned 3 decades: 1991-1999 (n = 103), 2000-2009 (n = 210), and 2010-2019 (n = 231). Surgery was performed in the lateral decubitus position in 318 patients and the semisitting position in 163 patients. Large T3 and T4 tumors were present in 77% of patients. RESULTS:Complete tumor removal was achieved in 94.3% of patients. A significant reduction in surgery duration and blood loss was observed over 3 decades for T3 (from 325 to 261 minutes, P < 0.001) and T4 (from 440 to 330 minutes, P < 0.001), but not for T1 and T2, tumors. The semisitting position diminished surgical time in T3 and T4 tumors by 1 more hour (P < 0.001). Over 3 decades, facial nerve outcome improved significantly from 59.8% House-Brackmann grade 1-2 in the first decade to 81.7% in the last decade (P < 0.001). Furthermore, hearing was preserved in 45.3%: 23.3% of patients in the first decade and 50.5% in the last decade (P = 0.03). However, neither facial nerve outcome nor hearing preservation significantly differed in patients operated on in the lateral decubitus versus the semisitting position. The most common complication was cerebrospinal fluid leak (6.1%) followed by hemorrhage (3.5%) and pulmonary embolism (2.2%). CONCLUSIONS:Follow-up over 3 decades illustrates a learning curve with significantly improved results. While the semisitting position accelerates the procedure and is associated with reduced blood loss, it does not significantly influence functional outcome.
