      Introduction. Pituitary tumours account for about % of intracranial tumours*.They typically arise from the anterior lobe of pituitary gland and are predominantly benign adenomas (around 65%).. There are several associated conditions with the development of pituitary tumours, most notably as part of multiple endocrine neoplasia (MEN) syndrome type 1, Carney Complex, and McCune 5/5. This gives the surgeons easy access to the gland with minimal injury to the patient. It is called ‘trans-sphenoidal surgery’ as the pituitary gland sits within a protective bony hollow on the ‘sphenoid’ bone, at the back of the nose. This is the commonest type of surgery for a pituitary adenoma.

Transsphenoidal surgery This is the most common way to remove pituitary tumors. Transsphenoidal means that the surgery is done through the sphenoid sinus, a hollow space in the skull behind the nasal passages and below the brain.

The back wall of the sinus covers the pituitary gland. Hypophysectomy is a surgery performed in people, dogs and cats for the treatment of clinical pituitary tumors and other masses within the region of the pituitary gland.

The surgical approach in people is through the nose using a cannula and endoscope for visualization. The pituitary gland may be affected by a wide variety of systemic disorders.

The pituitary could be directly involved by the same processes that affect other organs (e.g., inflammatory, autoimmune, or infectious disorders), or the primary disease process may elicit indirect, distant effects on pituitary–hypothalamic hormonal function. Surgery to remove a pituitary tumor is typically performed by a neurosurgeon, a surgeon specializing in the treatment of disorders of the central nervous system, which includes the brain and spine.

In some cases, an ENT (ear, nose, and throat) surgeon may be the surgeon or part of the team performing the surgery. Transsphenoidal surgery is the most common type of surgery used to treat pituitary gland tumours.

It is done under general anesthetic (you will be asleep). The surgeon uses surgical tools to get to the tumour through the nose and the sphenoid sinus (transsphenoidal). This surgery may be used to remove some or all of a pituitary gland tumour.

The pituitary gland releases too much adrenocorticotropic hormone in people with this condition. This can lead to easy bruising, high blood pressure, weakness, and weight gain. The pituitary gland's location (above the inside of your nose) makes it challenging to access. In most cases, we use the endoscopic endonasal transsphenoidal approach.

Hyponatremia after pituitary surgery is presumed to be due to antidiuresis; however, detailed prospective investigations of water balance that would define its pathophysiology and true incidence have not been established. In this prospective study, the authors documented water balance in patients fo.

The pituitary gland may be affected by a wide variety of systemic disorders.
