Olfactory outcomes after endoscopic pituitary surgery with nasoseptal "rescue" flaps: electrocautery versus cold knife.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Olfaction has been shown to have a large impact on patients' lives. Endoscopic pituitary surgery is associated with potentially significant damage to olfactory tissues. The objective of this study was to determine the effect of cauterization on olfactory function when performing endoscopic pituitary surgery with a nasoseptal "rescue" flap… (More)
