Neurohypophyseal peptide function during early postoperative diabetes insipidus.

Abstract

Neurohypophyseal function has been investigated in 11 children undergoing pituitary or suprasellar surgery. All had corticosteroid and thyroxine replacement; 9 developed diabetes insipidus (DI) within 1-12 h of operation. At the onset of DI, the plasma vasopressin (AVP) concentration was 3.9 +/- 1.2 pmol/l, considerably higher values usually associated with… (More)
