Prevalence and Impact of Postoperative Headaches in Nonfunctioning Pituitary Macroadenoma Patients: A Longitudinal Cohort Study.

Summary of "Prevalence and Impact of Postoperative Headaches in Nonfunctioning Pituitary Macroadenoma Patients: A Longitudinal Cohort Study."

Patients with nonfunctioning pituitary macroadenomas commonly experience headaches before and after surgery, and headaches have been reported to significantly detract from the quality of life. Despite this adverse impact, few studies have examined the prevalence and pattern of headaches on a long-term basis. Thus, this study employed a longitudinal cohort design to identify headache prevalence and severity during a 6-month postoperative period and its predictors.

Significance and indications of surgery for asymptomatic nonfunctioning pituitary adenomas.

The availability of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has led to an increase in the detection of pituitary incidentaloma (PI). However, there are no robust data on surgical treatment of PI on which to ...

The pre- and postoperative illness trajectory in patients with pituitary tumours.

Experiences and need of support during surgery and start of replacement therapy in patients with pituitary tumours are highly unknown. This study therefore aimed at exploring patient experiences durin...

Evaluation of Surgical Resection Goal and Its Relationship to Extent of Resection and Patient Outcomes in a Multicenter Prospective Study of Patients With Surgically Treated, Nonfunctioning Pituitary Adenomas: A Case Series.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The presence of fungi circulating in the blood. Opportunistic fungal sepsis is seen most often in immunosuppressed patients with severe neutropenia or in postoperative patients with intravenous catheters and usually follows prolonged antibiotic therapy.

Peptides, natural or synthetic, that stimulate the release of PITUITARY HORMONES. They were first isolated from the extracts of the HYPOTHALAMUS; MEDIAN EMINENCE; PITUITARY STALK; and NEUROHYPOPHYSIS. In addition, some hypophysiotropic hormones control pituitary cell differentiation, cell proliferation, and hormone synthesis. Some can act on more than one pituitary hormone.

Pathologic processes that affect patients after a surgical procedure. They may or may not be related to the disease for which the surgery was done, and they may or may not be direct results of the surgery.

A nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agent with potent analgesic and antiarthritic properties. It has been shown to be effective in the treatment of OSTEOARTHRITIS; RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS; ankylosing SPONDYLITIS; and in the alleviation of postoperative pain (PAIN, POSTOPERATIVE).

Disorders involving either the ADENOHYPOPHYSIS or the NEUROHYPOPHYSIS. These diseases usually manifest as hypersecretion or hyposecretion of PITUITARY HORMONES. Neoplastic pituitary masses can also cause compression of the OPTIC CHIASM and other adjacent structures.
