Context Remission failure following transsphenoidal surgery in Cushing disease (CD) from pituitary corticotroph tumors (CtTs) remains clinically challenging. Histone deacetylase inhibitors (HDACis) are antitumor drugs approved for clinical use, with the potential to affect adrenocorticotropin hormone (ACTH) hypersecretion by inhibiting pro-opiomelanocortin(More)
Context Perioperative increases in adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) and cortisol mimic results of corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH) stimulation testing. This phenomenon may help identify patients with residual adenoma after transsphenoidal surgery (TSS) for Cushing disease (CD). Objective To predict nonremission after TSS for CD. Design(More)
OBJECTIVE Accurate presurgical localization of microadenomas in Cushing's disease (CD) leads to improved remission rates and decreased adverse events. Volumetric gradient recalled echo (3D-GRE) MRI detects pituitary microadenomas in CD in up to 50%-80% cases as a focus of hypointensity due to delayed contrast wash-in. The authors have previously reported(More)
BACKGROUND Pre-operative detection of corticotropin (ACTH) secreting microadenomas causing Cushing's disease (CD) improves surgical outcomes. Current best magnetic resonance imaging fails to detect up to 40% of these microadenomas. 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG) positron emission tomography (PET) is specific, but not sensitive in detecting(More)
