Özet

BACKGROUND: The middle cranial fossa approach (MCFA) is a very valuable functional approach in the armamentarium of the neuro-otologic surgeon. Identification of the internal acoustic canal (IAC) in MCFA is one of the most tedious steps. Many techniques have been described to locate the IAC safely when using the MCFA.
