Superior Canal Dehiscence

Superior Canal Dehiscence is when the bony cap over the superior semicircular canal has eroded away and the tough covering (dura) that protects the temporal lobe can make contact with the inner membranes of this canal causing disequilibrium.

We have a great deal of experience with middle fossa craniotomy for tumor removal. This is far more complicated than the procedure to repair a semicircular canal fistula.
