Microsurgical Transsphenoidal Approach for Pituitary Denomas.
Yoon Sun Hahn, Hun Jae Lee
Department of Neurosurgery, Yonsei University, College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.
ABSTRACT
3 cases of pituitary adenomas, two hormone-secreting adenomas, and one non-secreting chromophobe adenoma, were treated surgically by the sublabial transsphenoidal approach with use of surgical microscope and radiofluroscopic image intensification at the Dept. of Neurosurgery, Yonsei University Medical College. The 2 cases of hormone secreting adenomas were an eosinophilic microadenoma manifestating gigantism and a prolaction secreting adenoma with amenorrhea and galactorrhea. The simplicity of this technique, criteria for the treatment of the hormone secreting and non-secreting adenomas and their biologic behaviors were described and discussed with review of literatures.
