Modified far lateral approach is helpful for removing the huge tumors at JF, especially for tumors extending to the petroclival region ventral part of pontomedullary junction. It has a higher rate of total resection, preoperative cranial nerve function impairment is expected to restore, and also has the advantage of protecting the facial nerve, labyrinth and vertebral artery structure from unnecessary damage.
