Endoscopic transsphenoidal pituitary surgery: a good and safe primary treatment option for Cushings disease, even in case of macroadenomas or invasive adenomas.

Abstract – European Journal of Endocrinology, 06/24/2013  Clinical Article

Wagenmakers MA et al. – This study aims to gain insight in the role of endoscopic TS as a primary treatment option for CD, especially in patients with MRI negative CD and (invasive) macroadenomas.

The data suggest that in patients with non–invasive and invasive macroadenomas the endoscopic technique of TS should be the technique of choice as remission rates seem to be higher than remission rates reported for microscopic TS, although no comparative study has been performed.
