EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

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.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Abstract : Objective: A major cause of readmission after transsphenoidal surgery (TSS) is delayed hyponatraemia. The purpose of this study was to identify predictors of hyponatraemia one week post surgery and predictors of 30-day readmissions for hyponatraemia. Design: A retrospective cohort study including patients who had TSS performed for pituitary lesions. Method: The risk of readmission for hyponatraemia was assessed in consecutive patients between January 2008 and March 2016. The risk of hyponatraemia one week post surgery was assessed in patients admitted for TSS between July 2011 and March 2016. Results: Of all included patients, 56/522 (10.7%) were readmitted within 30 days. Hyponatraemia was found in 14/56 (25%) of 30-day readmissions. We did not identify any predictive variable for hyponatraemia on readmission. The number of patients with hyponatraemia on the seventh post-operative day was 26/314 (8.3%). The risk of hyponatraemia one week post surgery was increased by an odds ratio of 2.40 (95% CI: 1.06–5.40) in patients with a tumour abutting the optic chiasm and by an odds ratio of 1.16 (1.04–1.31) per mmol/L decrease in sodium levels on the first post-operative day. Conclusions: Hyponatraemia occurred in 25% of readmissions; however, we did not identify any predictive variable for readmission with hyponatraemia. One week post surgery, 8.9% had hyponatraemia. Tumours pressing on the optic chiasm as well as a fall in sodium levels on the first post-operative day were associated with an increased risk of hyponatraemia one week post surgery. We suggest that a day 7 serum sodium

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

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.

Atlas Of Endoscopic Anatomy For Endonasal Intracranial Surgery
Author: Paolo Cappabianca
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
Release Date: 2001-07-25
Pages: 138
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

It is only recently that the use of the endoscope as the sole visualizing tool has been introduced in transsphenoidal pituitary surgery with its favorable related implications and minimal operative trauma. Of course, microscopic and endoscopic anatomy are basically the same, but the optical distorsion of endoscopic images is quite substantial compared to microscopic depictions. An endoscope lens produces images with maximal magnification at its center and severe contraction at its periphery. Nearer images are disproportionally enlarged and remote images are falsely miniaturized. This optical illusion may disorientate a surgeon who is not familiar with this peculiar condition at the skull base. This atlas acts as a guide through the endoscopic anatomy and gives detailed descriptions of the preoperative management and the surgical procedures.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Effectively avoiding, recognizing, and managing complications is integral to your operative success. Let a multidisciplinary team of experts in otolaryngology, plastic surgery, oral and maxillofacial surgery, and general surgery guide you through the full range of complications associated with every type of head and neck procedure . . . so you will be equipped to produce the most favorable outcomes for even the most challenging cases! Expert, comprehensive, multidisciplinary coverage of head and neck complications helps you to safely incorporate new surgical techniques into your practice. An emphasis on complication prevention and recognition assists you in avoiding the "complication cascade." Coverage of both acute and long-term care of patients with head and neck complications prepares you to make effective choices in both instances. A new "Quality of Life" section examines the controversies that often surround selecting one procedure over another, illuminating why certain procedures aren't always best for some patients. A new section on complications of facial plastic and reconstructive surgery equips you to perform these techniques with greater confidence. A consistent, practical chapter format helps you focus on key clinical and surgical considerations. A new, more cohesive full-color illustration program richly captures visual nuances of clinical presentation and operative technique. A bonus CD-ROM allows you to use all of the images from the book in electronic presentations.
