|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Vestibular Schwannoma Acoustic Neuroma||Radiation: Fractionated proton radiation||Phase 2|
- Proton radiation will be delivered daily for approximately 5.5 weeks. Participants will be assessed weekly for any side effects they may be experiencing.
- Participants will have a follow-up visit 6 months after their last proton radiation treatment and then every year from the time of treatment completion for 5 years. The following tests and procedures will be performed at these visits: medical history, physical exam, MRI scan, comprehensive hearing tests and a questionnaire.
