The authors emphasise the key role of the state of the foramen Luschka in indication of neurootologic surgical approaches. Blockage of the foramen of Luschka with a medium or big tumour may impaire the CSF circulation. In such case the lateral transtemporal approaches - translabyrinthine and transotic are the best options. In all other situations where there is no blockage of the CSF circulation in the affected pontocerebellar angle the choice of a surgical approach is determined by the state of hearing and character of disease. Surgical indications schould be elective and individually considered.
