The principal indications for the middle cranial fossa approach to the petrous apex and internal auditory canal are section of the vestibular nerves in vertigo, management of lesions of the labyrinthine segment of the facial nerve, and removal of mass lesions of the internal auditory canal. We report 153 cases of pathosis of the temporal bone and related structures for which this approach was used.
