Microsurgical resection of a samii type D jugular foramen schwannoma via the carotid triangle without removal of bony structure: how I do it.

BACKGROUND: Samii Type-D jugular foramen schwannomas (JFSs) are the most challenging for neurosurgeons because of anatomical complexity. Various neurosurgical approaches have been described to gain access to JF.

METHODS: We present a female with incidental diagnosis of the Type-D JFS. Complete radical resection was achieved via the carotid triangle approach without any bony structure removal. And the patient was discharged asymptomatic and without new-developed neurological deficits.

CONCLUSIONS: The carotid triangle is a secure and appropriate approach for some cases of selected Type-D JFSs. However, the specific indications of this approach should be further explored and investigated.
