    Which of the following is true about the CPA (cerebellopontine angle):

    • A.

      The CPA is a space where tumors may grow

    • B.

      Removal of tumors in the CPA region should include monitoring of the VIII nerve

    What nerve is stimulated 2cm distal to the fibular head?    

    • A.

      The tibial nerve

    • B.

      The peroneal nerve

    • C.

      The radial nerve

    • D.

      The median nerve
