New York/Stuttgart – According to the American Brain Tumor Association, pituitary adenomas account for 15-20% of primary brain tumors and are the third most common intracranial tumor after gliomas and meningiomas. While a majority of pituitary tumors are benign, removal of the tumor can be pursued in order to restore normal hormone function or to address other symptoms. Given that the pituitary gland is located deep in the skull base, transsphenoidal endoscopic approaches for removing the tumor are often considered to be a preferred option if the patient is a viable candidate.

“Endoscopic Pituitary Surgery,” recently published by Thieme, describes both cutting-edge endoscopic techniques and tried-and-true decision-making methodologies that lead to the most successful outcomes in pituitary surgery. From choosing the right surgical or non-surgical approach for individual patients, to managing complex endocrine and neuro-ophthalmologic issues, this is the first major reference in the field in nearly a decade, making it the go-to guide for all interdisciplinary specialists who treat pituitary tumors.

“There is a steep learning curve in mastering endoscopic surgery, and this book will shorten that curve by facilitating the reader’s three-dimensional understanding of this surgical corridor. Precise understanding of anatomy is the framework upon which surgeons develop their skill and judgment. The authors have helped us expand our knowledge in many critical areas.” – Philip E. Stieg, PhD (from the Foreword)

Enhanced by hundreds of images, decision-making algorithms, and clinical pearls from experts on each tumor type, “Endoscopic Pituitary Surgery” is a comprehensive guide representing the current palette of available treatment options. It is indispensable for residents in training as well as for practicing neurosurgeons and otolaryngologists who are making the transition to the newest minimally invasive endoscopic procedures in the treatment of pituitary lesions.
