Hearing loss is the most frequent symptom caused by vestibular schwannomas [1]. Aside from the rare tumor that presents itself for a hearing-preservation surgery, the majority of tumors will likely result in deafness of the affected ear regardless of the intervention modality. The natural history of hearing in observed tumors also predicts eventual decline [2]. Hearing loss attributed to vestibular schwannomas remains the primary driver for poor quality of life in this patient population [3, 4].
