Figure 2: (a) Facial schwannoma arising from the labyrinthine segment, involving the geniculate ganglion and the internal auditory meatal segments. Dotted lines indicate the resection margins. (b) Epineurium is peeled back and perineurium is sutured on both sides without injuring the endoneurial filaments using 8-0 monofolament. (c) Two or three circumferential sutures with 8-0 monofilament are undertaken to get good approximation of the ends
