Endoscopic vs microsurgical transsphenoidal surgery for acromegaly: outcomes in a concurrent series of patients using modern criteria for remission.
CONTEXT It is unclear whether endoscopic transsphenoidal surgery (ETSS) or microsurgical transsphenoidal surgery (MTS) is a superior surgical approach for pituitary adenomas. OBJECTIVE TheExpand

Gamma Knife radiosurgery for the management of nonfunctioning pituitary adenomas: a multicenter study.
OBJECT Pituitary adenomas are fairly common intracranial neoplasms, and nonfunctioning ones constitute a large subgroup of these adenomas. Complete resection is often difficult and may pose undueExpand

TNF-α Induces Phenotypic Modulation in Cerebral Vascular Smooth Muscle Cells: Implications for Cerebral Aneurysm Pathology
Little is known about vascular smooth muscle cell (SMC) phenotypic modulation in the cerebral circulation or pathogenesis of intracranial aneurysms. Tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) has beenExpand

A patchwork pathway for oxygenase‐independent degradation of side chain containing steroids
The denitrifying betaproteobacterium Sterolibacterium denitrificans serves as model organism for studying the oxygen-independent degradation of cholesterol. Here, we demonstrate its capability ofExpand

A practical grading scale for predicting outcome after radiosurgery for arteriovenous malformations: analysis of 1012 treated patients.
OBJECT The authors performed a study to review outcomes following Gamma Knife radiosurgery for cerebral arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) and to create a practical scale to predict long-termExpand

Neurologic assessment of somatosensory dysfunction following an experimental rodent model of cerebral ischemia
The modified adhesive removal (sticky-tape) test is an assessment of somatosensory dysfunction following cerebral ischemia in rats. This test is less time consuming than the original protocol byExpand
