With large CPA tumors, the goal of surgery is safe total removal of the tumors and preservation of nearby neural structures. Although the suboccipital approach can be made for large CPA tumors, combined approach is more preferable method for the wide exposure of the CPA including brain stem and the lower cranial nerves. We have recently experienced favorable results by combined approach. Total removal of large tumors were obtained by these approaches. The authors present surgical points of view and a brief review of literature.
Key Words: Combined approach; Suboccipital transpetrous/Transtentorial; Suboccipital translabyrinthine; Cerebellopontine angle
