Autopsy reports and radiologic and MRI evidence from around the globe indicate that one out of every five people worldwide has a pituitary tumor, although many of the tumors do not cause symptoms and the condition is never diagnosed during the person's lifetime . About 15% of tumors in the skull are pituitary tumors; most are located in the anterior pituitary lobe and are usually noncancerous.
All neurosurgery residents are trained in pituitary surgery; this is a bread & butter surgical area for them. Over the last decade techniques in pituitary surgery have rapidly evolved as the entire surgical field has sought out minimally invasive procedures whenever possible. As a result, endoscopic procedures have become the preferred approach in pituitary surgery.
The proposed book aims to be THE go-to, comprehensive and current guide on pituitary surgery, finding audiences with both neurosurgeons and otolaryngologists who perform these procedures. However, this book will not only contain the state-of-the-art technical aspects of endoscopic pituitary surgery, but will also tap the knowledge base of the masters in this specialty who will reveal their time-tested decision-making processes for determining which patients are candidates for pituitary surgery, endoscopic versus open (craniotomy), and which would be better served with alternative treatments such as medication.
