RICHARD BARKER - Acoustic Neuroma Patient Archive

Ellen was also a good friend of Dr Ladislau Steiner, Professor of Neurological Surgery and Director of the Lars Leksell Center for Radiosurgery at the University of Virginia.
Having reviewed the scientific literature, I telephoned Dr Steiner in Virginia (12/6/90). He talked readily and frankly about his long experience with the treatment of acoustic neuromas. He agreed that there was certainly no need for me to rush into any type of treatment since he was convinced that these tumors are typically slow-growing. I could simply wait for another MRI scan in six months to see if any growth had taken place. Surgical removal, he said, was the conventional treatment; however, for this he cautioned that it was essential to seek out the best, most experienced surgeon possible. There were in his opinion only four or five surgeons competent to perform the delicate operation . As for the Gamma Knife, Dr Steiner said that he was no longer skeptical about its use for acoustic neuromas; it could be very effective and was no longer an experimental therapy. Since 1968, 400 cases of acoustic neuroma were treated with the Gamma Knife. There were some limitations in its effectiveness, however, and surgery might still be necessary in some cases. One advantage to Gamma Knife treatment is that it does not require a long hospital stay, and is therefore less expensive (ca.$20-22,000) than surgery. One disadvantage for some people, said Dr Steiner, is psychological: that is, after the radiation treatment the tumor is still there; hopefully it has been made to stop growing and will begin to shrink, but it is still there. For some, this can be disturbing. After talking with Dr Steiner, I decided to do nothing until after having a second MRI scan. This second scan (3/21/91) was sent to Dr Steiner for analysis. His review and comparison with the earlier scan of 10/18/90 showed no change in the size of the tumor. It still measured 1.2cm in all diameters. A decision now had to be made. Should I continue with the periodic MRIs to monitor the size of the tumor? I was having no difficulties except for the hearing loss. Conceivably, as we had by now learned, I could wait for 4-5 years or longer before taking any action. Or, should I arrange with Dr Steiner for Gamma Knife treatment, which we had learned is especially effective for small tumors such as mine? By this time, I had definitely decided on the Gamma Knife to avoid the complications of invasive surgery that I was by then reading about in the Notes of the Acoustic Neuroma Association. Although my wife favored waiting, I decided to go ahead with the Gamma Knife. I suppose that like most people with tumors I felt the need to "do something. I called Dr Steiner and made arrangements for Gamma Knife radiosurgery. I would enter the University of Virginia Health Sciences Center in the PM of June 10, receive radiosurgery June 11, and be discharged in the AM of June 12. My brother Bob would accompany me, and Dr Steiner was kind enough to give him special permission to videotape during the radiosurgery treatment. In my experience, the Gamma Knife treatment under Dr Steiner's direction involved a minimum of discomfort. I was somewhat apprehensive over the head frame that must be attached to the skull, but this minor operation was performed expertly and painlessly by Dr Steiner. The radiosurgery treatment itself was like having a noiseless MRI scan, although the Gamma Knife instrumentation is much more impressive. Throughout the procedure I was impressed as well by Dr Steiner's seriousness and concern for my comfort. His well-trained team of technicians also merited my admiration. Dr Steiner advised waiting for one year before checking again. Dr Steiner reported: "The tumor which measured 0.32cm 3 the time of the treatment now measures 0.23cm 3. That is to say, there has been about a 28% reduction in the volume of the tumor. 6/15/96 - MRI scan. Dr Steiner reported: "At the time of the treatment, this right sided vestibular schwannoma measured 0.3cm3.
