OBJECTIVE To analyze the impact of intraoperative ultra-low-field magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) on the extent of tumor resection in nonfunctioning pituitary adenomas (NFPAs). METHODS Retrospective analysis was performed of 104 consecutive cases undergoing intraoperative MRI-guided transsphenoidal surgery for NFPA. General patient data; endocrinologic parameters; neurologic examinations; preoperative and postoperative symptoms; preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative imaging; and… CONTINUE READING
