Abstract

The retrolabyrinthine approach is an important skull base technique indicated for multiple pathologies of the posterior cranial fossa. This approach allows for preservation of hearing while directly accessing the cerebellopontine angle and avoiding manipulation of neural sturctures. Given the complex nature of this procedure, it is necessary that all skull base surgeons have a firm grasp on the microsurgical anatomy and nuances of the technique. This article provides a brief overview with illustrations of the retrolabyrinthine approach.
