Outcomes of Transnasal Endoscopic Removal of Pituitary Tumors

Monil Parsana | Dhwani Mehta | Kalpesh Patel [4]

Abstract: Pituitary adenomas are common benign tumors of the pituitary gland. Endoscopic trans sphenoidal approach for resection of the tumor is widely applied recently.50 pituitary adenoma cases from January 2015 to January 2016, operated by trans sphenoidal approach endoscopically were included in this study which were assessed clinically for hormonal imbalance and visual symptoms and radiologically for tumor extension. Post operatively patients were assessed at timely intervals for complications.39 patients out of 50 patients diagnosed with pituitary adenoma got remission with fewer complications. In conclusion, this study demonstrates that endoscopic endonasal surgery for pituitary adenomas has a high imaging total removal rate (64 %) while the endocrinological remission rate of functional pituitary adenoma is 78 %.
