OBJECTIVE: To determine the current epidemiology and management trends for patients with vestibular schwannomas (VS). STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study. SETTING: The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) tumor registry. PATIENTS: The SEER database was queried to identify patients diagnosed with VS from 1973 to 2015. Demographics, patient and tumor characteristics, and treatment methods were analyzed. RESULTS: A total of 14,507 patients with VS were identified. The mean age at...

Objective Reports on the epidemiology of vestibular schwannoma (VS) indicate an increase in diagnosed cases, often based on selected materials over a limited period of time. This report presents prospective 40-year epidemiological data from an unselected national cohort of all patients diagnosed with a VS in Denmark since 1976.

Objectives:Vestibular schwannomas, also known as acoustic neuromas, are slow-growing tumors that may lead to asymmetric hearing loss, unilateral tinnitus, and vertigo. Population-based data are lacking regarding the incidence of vestibular schwannoma in Asian populations. The aim of this study was to investigate the incidence of vestibular schwannoma in Taiwan using data from a population-based health claim database.Subjects and Methods:Patients aged 20 years and over with incident cases of vest...

Objective: To identify incidence of vestibular schwannoma (VS) in The Netherlands. Determining incidence of VS poses considerable challenges given the lack of complete epidemiologic data. Study Design: Retrospective patient review. Setting: Tertiary referral center. Patients: Patients with VS in The Netherlands. Data on patients with VS during 2001 to 2012 were obtained from The Netherlands Cancer Registry (NCR). Notification to the NCR is primarily pathology-based, but additional sources are us...
