Summary of "Combined endoscopic endonasal and bilateral subfrontal approach for a non-functioning pituitary adenoma associated with an internal carotid artery - superior hypophyseal artery aneurysm."

An aneurysm embedded in a pituitary adenoma is rare, and treatment for both the aneurysm and pituitary adenoma is complex and controversial.

Simultaneous resection of pituitary macroadenoma and sphenoid sinus inverted papilloma: The challenge of operating sinonasal and skull base pathologies through a single-stage endoscopic endonasal approach.

Coexistence of sinonasal and skull-base tumors is uncommon but possible, and the endonasal route seems to be the best option to manage simultaneously both lesions. We report the first case in English ...

Cognitive functioning in patients with nonfunctioning pituitary adenoma before and after endoscopic endonasal transsphenoidal surgery.

Patients with nonfunctioning pituitary adenomas (NFPAs) can suffer from cognitive dysfunction. However, the literature on longitudinal cognitive follow-up of patients undergoing endoscopic endonasal t...

A Systematic Review of Prophylactic Antibiotic Use in Endoscopic Endonasal Transsphenoidal Surgery for Pituitary Lesions.

The benefit of prophylactic antibiotic use in endoscopic endonasal transsphenoidal surgery (EETS) for pituitary lesions is controversial. Many surgeons administer antibiotics perioperatively not based...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Changing an operative procedure from an endoscopic surgical procedure to an open approach during the INTRAOPERATIVE PERIOD.

Fiberoptic endoscopy designed for duodenal observation and cannulation of VATER'S AMPULLA, in order to visualize the pancreatic and biliary duct system by retrograde injection of contrast media. Endoscopic (Vater) papillotomy (SPHINCTEROTOMY, ENDOSCOPIC) may be performed during this procedure.

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.

Incision of Oddi's sphincter or Vater's ampulla performed by inserting a sphincterotome through an endoscope (DUODENOSCOPE) often following retrograde cholangiography (CHOLANGIOPANCREATOGRAPHY, ENDOSCOPIC RETROGRADE). Endoscopic treatment by sphincterotomy is the preferred method of treatment for patients with retained or recurrent bile duct stones post-cholecystectomy, and for poor-surgical-risk patients that have the gallbladder still present.
