Experts Map Surgical Approaches for Auditory Brainstem Implantation
A technique called auditory brainstem implantation can restore hearing for patients who can’t benefit from cochlear implants. A team of US and Japanese experts has mapped out the surgical anatomy and approaches for auditory brainstem implantation in the June issue of Operative Neurosurgery, published on behalf of the Congress of Neurological Surgeons by Wolters Kluwer.

Dr. Albert L. Rhoton, Jr., and colleagues of University of Florida, Gainesville, and Fukuoka University, Japan, performed a series of meticulous dissections to demonstrate and illustrate surgical approaches to auditory brainstem implant placement. Their article shares exquisitely detailed anatomic color photographs, along with step-by-step descriptions of two alternative routes for neurosurgeons performing these demanding implant procedures.

In a series of ten cadaver brainstem dissections, the researchers explored the anatomy of the region that the neurosurgeon must navigate to perform auditory brainstem implantation. They also mapped out the best neurosurgical approaches, both for surgery to remove the tumors and for auditory brainstem implant placement.

Based on their findings, Dr. Rhoton and colleagues detail two surgical approaches: a “translabyrinthine” and a “retrosigmoid” approach. They outline a step- by -step route for both approaches, designed to provide safe access to the area while minimizing trauma to the brainstem and surrounding structures.
