Patients can expect Sonus Complete Review to be hospitalized for up to a week after the operation. Full recovery usually takes about four to six weeks. Typical side effects during recouperation are headache, fatigue and stiff neck. The mortality rate of this operation is very low. About 20% of patients experience some complications after the procedure. In most cases, these complications are treated and subside without long term effects. It is not a minor surgery and there are associated risks such as: stroke, brain stem injury, infection, and damage to cranial nerves. A common side effect is hearing loss. Standard procedure is for the patient to have a follow-up MRI for the early detection of any potential regrowth of tumors. Stereotactic radiotherapy, which was also known as radiosurgery or radiotherapy started several years ago. The concentrated radiation is given out in a single dose, under local anesthesia and on an outpatient basis. The result is a high dose of radiation directly to the tumor. This approach is limited to treating small or medium tumors and limits the potential collateral damage of the radiation to surrounding tissue. The long-term efficacy and risks of this treatment to shrink tumors are not known, but from the 2000s an increasing number of patients with acoustic neuromas opt for this form of therapy. Acoustic neuromas usually grow slowly and often cease growing and start to shrink. Therefore, it may be appropriate in some cases, to take a less aggressive stance and not proceed with treatment, but rather begin regular monitoring of the tumor by MRI. Regular monitoring would be the best course of action for someone, possibly with a small acoustic neuroma, which are typically found through an evaluation of another medical problem. The danger, of course, of a monitoring approach is the possibility that the tumor can grow which will make it more difficult to treat in the future.
