Abstract

An Analysis of Translational Radiotherapy for Vestibular Schwannoma

Laura Sebastian*

The treatment of vestibular schwannoma is still up for debate and may involve a wait-and-see approach, surgery, and radiotherapy, primarily using a stereotactic technique. Reviewing the outcomes of current clinical series that received radiotherapy is the goal of this investigation. Materials and procedures Pubmed and Scopus were used to search the literature using the terms "vestibular schwannoma, acoustic neuroma, radiation, and radiosurgery". Waiting it out, surgery, and radiotherapy are among the treatment options for VS. When treating minor lesions, radiosurgery (SRS) has a local control rate of more than 90%, which is comparable to surgical methods. Recent research reviews demonstrate that SRS results in positive functional outcomes. In cases of massive inoperable lesions, fractionated stereotactic radiotherapy (FSRT) is recommended by a number of academic studies. Radiotherapy is important in the management of VS. SRS can ensure comparable local control and possibly superior function outcomes in smallsize lesions compared to surgery. When surgery is not an option for large and irregularly shaped lesions, FSRT may be employed.
