Endoscopic endonasal transsphenoidal approach (EETA) is an effective and relatively safe to remove pituitary adenomas and other sellar region tumors. One of the most serious complications of transsphenoidal surgery is damage to the cavernous segment of the internal carotid artery, which by different authors occurs at 0 to 3.8%. In the period from 2005 to(More)
This paper provides the practical part of a procedure for endoscopic endonasal transsphenoidal resection of pituitary tumors. The authors have presently gained experience with about 400 endoscopic endonasal transsphenoidal operations. The advantages of endoscopic surgery include the wide vision field of an operative site under good illumination. The(More)
A prospective study of 55 patients with large and giant prolactin-secreting pituitary tumors receiving dopamine agonists as primary treatment was performed. Statistically significant data were obtained indicating decrease of prolactin level, improvement of vision, normalization of sexual function and shrinking of the tumor. Effectiveness and safety of(More)
The current paper analyses results of endoscopic endonasal surgical treatment of 1700 patients with pituitary adenomas in Burdenko Neurosurgical Institute during recent 7 years. We assessed the following parameters: dynamics of basic syndromes (neuroophthalmological, neurological and endocrinological symptoms), degree of resection, frequency and types of(More)
This article is devoted to the probleme of modern Pediatrics pathology of the immune system in children with complicated viral infections. The aim of this study was to investigate the immune and cytokine status in children with complicated acute respiratory viral infections. The study included 100 children are often ill respiratory virus infections (more(More)
The structure of surgery of pituitary adenomas has been fundamentally changed over the past decade. The transnasal transsphenoidal approach is currently used to resect more than 95% of adenomas. The wide use of endoscopy has changed the need for perioperative control of intracranial pressure. While controlled intracranial hypertension was previously used(More)
INTRODUCTION Pituitary adenomas are benign growths that invade the cavernous sinus (CS) in 10-15% of cases. There are different types of microsurgical and endoscopic approaches enabling resection of tumors from the CS cavity that is a relatively small and hard to reach anatomical structure comprising eloquent neurovascular structures. MATERIAL AND METHODS(More)
Giant pituitary adenomas (more than 60 mm) are a most difficult group of tumors of the pituitary. Surgery is practically the only treatment, visual functions being most vulnerable. The study showed that the procedures for removal of tumors through transsphenoidal approach (improved vision or no negative changes was noted in 78.2% of the patients) or made in(More)
The authors analyse rhinological aspects of endoscopic endonasal transsphenoidal adenomectomy (EETA): a nasal operation, intra- and postoperative liquorrhea, liquorrhea-associated meningitis, postoperative nasal hemorrhage, local changes of nasal cavity anatomic structures; provide practical recommendations on management of the conditions many of which are(More)
Benign pituitary tumors or adenomas are highly common, occasionally inclined to infiltrate the adjacent structures, the cavernous sinus in particular. Despite the fact that drug and radiation therapy are at present widely used treatments, surgical procedures remain highly topical. Different modifications of two basic surgical methods (transcranial(More)
