Long-Term Longitudinal QoL in Patients Undergoing EEA

2019-09-18 03:27:45 | BioPortfolio


This is a prospective longitudinal study to access postoperative 2-year quality of life in patients who undergo endonasal endoscopic approach surgeries of the skull base.


This is a prospective single-institution longitudinal study to access quality of life in patients who undergo endonasal endoscopic approach surgeries of the skull base. Patients will be followed before surgery and up to twenty-four months post-surgery. The primary goal of the study is to assess the alterations to patient quality of life following endoscopic endonasal surgery using modern sinonasal reconstruction techniques. Secondary goals are to better understand the time course of normal healing and patient/procedural risk factors associated with poorer quality of life outcomes.

Peel-off resection of the pituitary gland for functional pituitary adenomas: pathological significance and impact on pituitary function.

Functional pituitary adenomas (FPAs) lacking a well-defined pseudocapsule can invade the adjacent pituitary gland. In such situations, peel-off resection of the adjacent pituitary gland after selectiv...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A pituitary tumor that secretes GROWTH HORMONE. In humans, excess HUMAN GROWTH HORMONE leads to ACROMEGALY.

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.

A benign tumor, usually found in the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland, whose cells stain with acid dyes. Such pituitary tumors may give rise to excessive secretion of growth hormone, resulting in gigantism or acromegaly. A specific type of acidophil adenoma may give rise to nonpuerperal galactorrhea. (Dorland, 27th ed)

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.

Neural tissue of the pituitary gland, also known as the neurohypophysis. It consists of the distal AXONS of neurons that produce VASOPRESSIN and OXYTOCIN in the SUPRAOPTIC NUCLEUS and the PARAVENTRICULAR NUCLEUS. These axons travel down through the MEDIAN EMINENCE, the hypothalamic infundibulum of the PITUITARY STALK, to the posterior lobe of the pituitary gland.
