  • In asymmetric SNHL, MRI should be performed regardless of ABR results.

  • Gadolinium-enhanced MRI is the gold standard exam for suspected VS.

  • Intervention is indicated for tumors with significant growth (≥2 mm/year) and/or on Koos grade III and IV.

  • Radiotherapy may be indicated as primary treatment in selected cases; however, there is still controversy surrounding long-term effectiveness and safety, especially in young patients.

  • Surgery is superior to radiotherapy in order to preserve serviceable hearing in patients with VS.

  • The CI may be indicated in patients with single-sided deafness and chronic intractable tinnitus due to sporadic VS undergoing surgery or radiotherapy when there is anatomical and functional preservation of the cochlear nerve. In this scenario, the risks and benefits should be considered, as well as the additional care required for postoperative radiological follow-up.
