Endoscopic Endonasal Transsphenoidal Surgery Summary:

Currently, surgical management provides the definitive treatment of choice for most pituitary adenomas, craniopharyngiomas and meningiomas of the sellar region. The elegant minimally invasive transnasal endoscopic approach to the sella turcica and the anterior skull base has added a new dimension of versatility to pituitary surgery and can be adapted to many lesions in the region. In this multi-author book with numerous color illustrations the main aspects of the endonasal endoscopic approach to the skull base are presented, starting with a clear description of the endoscopic anatomy, the panoramic view afforded by the endoscope and the development of effective instruments and adjuncts. After the diagnostic studies, the strictly surgical features are considered in detail. The standard technique is described and particular aspects are treated, including the new extended approaches to the cavernous sinus, spheno-ethmoid planum and clival regions. The book stresses the importance of teamwork and has been produced by one of the pioneering groups in the field of endoscopic approaches to the pituitary. It is a useful guide primarily for neurosurgeons and sinonasal endoscopic surgeons but also for other specialists involved in the diagnosis and treatment of skull base lesions.

Pituitary Surgery Summary:

The management of pituitary adenomas and other sellar tumors is one of the most difficult tasks for neurosurgeons and endocrinologists. Optimal treatment requires a multidisciplinary approach; neurological, ophthalmological, and endocrinological tests are all required. Fortunately, the past decade has seen rapid improvements in the management of patients with pituitary adenomas and other sellar tumors. Transsphenoidal surgery has gone from being an innovative approach to pituitary adenomas to having become the standard procedure for a whole variety of sellar and para-sellar lesions. The authors contributing to this book expertly detail the state-of-the-art treatment of patients with pituitary adenomas, covering operative approaches, peri-operative management, surgical pathology as well as the newer extensions such as image guidance and endoscopy. They also identify the complementary roles of radiosurgery and transcranial surgery in the approach to sellar and suprasellar tumors. In addition the text gives a glimpse at what the future may hold for the treatment of such tumors. The present volume of Frontiers of Hormone Research will be of great value for endocrinologists, neurosurgeons, neuropathologists, neuro-ophthalmologists, and otolaryngologists in the treatment of patients with pituitary adenomas.

The Pituitary Summary:

The pituitary, albeit a small gland, is known as the "master gland" of the endocrine system and contributes to a wide spectrum of disorders, diseases, and syndromes. Since the publication of the second edition of The Pituitary, in 2002, there have been major advances in the molecular biology research of pituitary hormone production and action and there is now a better understanding of the pathogenesis of pituitary tumors and clinical syndromes resulting in perturbation of pituitary function. There have also been major advances in the clinical management of pituitary disorders. Medical researchers and practitioners now better understand the morbidity and mortality associated with pituitary hormone hyposecretion and hypersecretion. Newly developed drugs, and improved methods of delivering established drugs, are allowing better medical management of acromegaly and prolactinoma. These developments have improved the worldwide consensus around the definition of a "cure" for pituitary disease, especially hormone hypersecretion, and hence will improve the success or lack of success of various forms of therapy. It is therefore time for a new edition of The Pituitary. The third edition will continue to be divided into sections that summarize normal hypothalamic-pituitary development and function, hypothalamic-pituitary failure, and pituitary tumors; additional sections will describe pituitary disease in systemic disorders and diagnostic procedures, including imaging, assessment of the eyes, and biochemical testing. The first chapter will be completely new – placing a much greater emphasis on physiology and pathogenesis. Two new chapters will be added on the Radiation and Non-surgical Management of the Pituitary and Other Pituitary Lesions. Other chapters will be completely updated and many new author teams will be invited. The second edition published in 2002 and there have been incredible changes in both the research and clinical aspects of the pituitary over the past 8 ye
