Endocrine management has undergone considerable change in the last decade, generating a real need for this brilliantly expanded and fully updated edition of Management of Pituitary Tumors: The Clinician's Practical Guide. Once again, leading physicians from a variety of medical specialties summarize their clinical experiences in treating pituitary adenomas in North America and the United Kingdom. Using simple language to describe their approaches, the authors have produced a comprehensive but user-friendly guide to the many differing aspects of these fascinating tumors. The book combines individual chapters on the latest treatments for prolactinoma, acromegaly, Cushing's disease, and nonfunctioning pituitary tumors. There are also discussions of the latest transsphenoidal and endoscopic endonasal transsphenoidal surgical techniques, and the latest radiotherapy techniques, including Gamma Knife radiosurgery, all explained in terms that the nonsurgical specialist will understand. Expert guidance is also provided on surgical assessment, on anesthetic management, and on the early and long-term postoperative management of pituitary tumors. To round out the clinician's understanding of the illness, a patient describes the actual experience of diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up. Authoritative and accessible, Management of Pituitary Tumors: The Clinician's Practical Guide brings together all the medical fields involved in treating pituitary tumors, both for novices across all the specialties that manage these cases, and for those pituitary specialists seeking to understand better the contribution of other medical disciplines to the treatment of these formidable tumors
