Problems with diagnosis of a vestibular schwannomas
Keywords:vestibular schwannoma, diagnostics, clinic
Modern data of scientific literature on epidemiology, systems of classification, early diagnostics and clinical features of vestibular schwannoma (VS) were analyzed. Main attention was paid to VS early diagnosis. The measures, aimed to improve early diagnosis of VS were given, that will improve treatment results and minimize incidence of postoperative complications and disability of patients with VS.
