Accurate assessment of the hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal (HPA) axis is critical for the appropriate management of patients with pituitary adenoma after transsphenoidal surgery. We examine the role of immediate postoperative cortisol levels to assess hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal axis (HPA) axis function post-operatively. We performed preoperative cortrosyn stimulation test (CST) and measured immediate postoperative serum cortisol levels in 100 patients undergoing 104 transsphenoidal surgeries… CONTINUE READING
