Acromegaly: an endocrine society clinical practice guideline.
This evidence-based guideline addresses important clinical issues regarding the evaluation and management of acromegaly, including the appropriate biochemical assessment, a therapeutic algorithm, including use of medical monotherapy or combination therapy, and management during pregnancy.
Guidelines of the Pituitary Society for the diagnosis and management of prolactinomas
These guidelines represent the current recommendations on the diagnosis and management of prolactinomas based upon comprehensive analysis and synthesis of all available data.
Symptomatic pituitary metastases.
Aggressive treatment including both surgical decompression and radiation therapy improves the quality of life in patients suffering from symptomatic pituitary metastasis.
Randomized controlled trial of intraputamenal glial cell line–derived neurotrophic factor infusion in Parkinson disease
This randomized controlled clinical trial was designed to confirm initial clinical benefits observed in a small, open‐label trial using intraputamenal (Ipu) infusion of recombinant human GDNF (liatermin).
Proliferative activity and invasiveness among pituitary adenomas and carcinomas: an analysis using the MIB-1 antibody.
Although invasive pituitary tumors exhibited significantly higher growth fractions than did noninvasive tumors, there were individual exceptions, indicating that in a subpopulation of invasive pituitsary tumors, factors other than proliferative activity determine invasive potential.
Survival following surgery and prognostic factors for recently diagnosed malignant glioma: data from the Glioma Outcomes Project.
These data provide Class II evidence to support tumor grade, patient's age, and patient's functional status as prognostic factors for survival in individuals with recently diagnosed malignant gliomas.
Dysembryoplastic neuroepithelial tumor: a surgically curable tumor of young patients with intractable partial seizures. Report of thirty-nine cases.
The identification of DNT has therapeutic and prognostic implications because aggressive therapy can be avoided, thus sparing these young patients the deleterious long term effects of radio- or chemotherapy.
Seizures after head trauma
A cohort of 2747 patients with head injuries was followed for 28,176 person-years to determine the magnitude and duration of the risk of posttxaumatic seizures. Injuries were classified as severe
A retrospective analysis of pituitary apoplexy.
Analysis of the degree of improvement in preoperative visual deficits with the timing of the surgery demonstrated that those who underwent surgery within a week of apoplexy had significant recovery in their visual acuities.
Neurosurgical management of low-grade astrocytoma of the cerebral hemispheres.
The authors conducted a retrospective review of surgically treated, histologically proven cases of low-grade (Grade 1 or 2) astrocytomas, and a "score" was developed to predict survival times, based on the most important variables.
