Endocrine Outcomes After Transsphenoidal Surgery for Pituitary Apoplexy and Macroadenoma: Some Concerns.

Acromegaly remission, SIADH and pituitary function recovery after macroadenoma apoplexy

Pituitary apoplexy is a rare but potentially life-threatening clinical syndrome characterised by ischaemic infarction or haemorrhage into a pituitary tumour that can lead to spontaneous remission of h...

Comparison of Short-Term Outcomes Between Endoscopic and Microscopic Trans-Sphenoidal Surgery for the Treatment of Pituitary Adenoma.

Until today, it is unclear if endoscopic or microscopic transsphenoidal surgery is the most adequate treatment technique for pituitary adenoma, while microscopic transsphenoidal surgery is termed as a...

(6)Surgical Treatment for Pituitary Tumors:Endoscopic Transsphenoidal vs. Microscopic Transsphenoidal Surgery.

Multiple pituitary apoplexy - cavernous sinus invasion as major risk factor for recurrent hemorrhage.

Pituitary apoplexy is a rare but potentially life-threatening disorder that occurs in up to 10% of adenomas. Whereas risk factors for the initial hemorrhagic event are well described, there is minor k...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Diminution or cessation of secretion of one or more hormones from the anterior pituitary gland (including LH; FOLLICLE STIMULATING HORMONE; SOMATOTROPIN; and CORTICOTROPIN). This may result from surgical or radiation ablation, non-secretory PITUITARY NEOPLASMS, metastatic tumors, infarction, PITUITARY APOPLEXY, infiltrative or granulomatous processes, and other conditions.

The sudden loss of blood supply to the PITUITARY GLAND, leading to tissue NECROSIS and loss of function (PANHYPOPITUITARISM). The most common cause is hemorrhage or INFARCTION of a PITUITARY ADENOMA. It can also result from acute hemorrhage into SELLA TURCICA due to HEAD TRAUMA; INTRACRANIAL HYPERTENSION; or other acute effects of central nervous system hemorrhage. Clinical signs include severe HEADACHE; HYPOTENSION; bilateral visual disturbances; UNCONSCIOUSNESS; and COMA.

Surgery performed on any endocrine gland.

A multi-function neuropeptide that acts throughout the body by elevating intracellular cyclic AMP level via its interaction with PACAP RECEPTORS. Although first isolated from hypothalamic extracts and named for its action on the pituitary, it is widely distributed in the central and peripheral nervous systems. PACAP is important in the control of endocrine and homeostatic processes, such as secretion of pituitary and gut hormones and food intake.

A collection of NEURONS, tracts of NERVE FIBERS, endocrine tissue, and blood vessels in the HYPOTHALAMUS and the PITUITARY GLAND. This hypothalamo-hypophyseal portal circulation provides the mechanism for hypothalamic neuroendocrine (HYPOTHALAMIC HORMONES) regulation of pituitary function and the release of various PITUITARY HORMONES into the systemic circulation to maintain HOMEOSTASIS.
