Abstract

Vestibular schwannomas are benign tumors of the Schwann cells of the eighth (VIII) cranial nerve. Precision radiotherapy techniques used to manage these tumors include stereotactic radiotherapy (SRT), which can be delivered with either a conventional or hypofractionated regimen. The radio-biologic rationale and reported clinical outcomes of patients treated with SRT are reviewed.
