How vestibular schwannoma (VS) position relative to the internal auditory canal (IAC) axis can be used along with tumor size to predict postoperative facial outcomes.
Intranasal Corticosteroids Treatment Shown Ineffective for Chronic Eustachian Tube Dysfunction
Most patients with chronic Eustachian tube dysfunction (ETD) fail intranasal corticosteroid treatment.
