PURPOSE To evaluate the reduction of hormonal overproduction and side effects as well as survival rates after fractionated stereotactic conformal radiotherapy (FSRT) and radiosurgery in patients with growth hormone (GH)-secreting pituitary adenoma. METHODS AND MATERIALS Between January 1989 and May 2001, 25 consecutive patients were treated with FSRT (n = 20) or radiosurgery (n = 5) for GH-secreting pituitary adenoma. Nine patients were treated for recurrent disease after primary surgery. One… CONTINUE READING
