Cancers, Vol. 13, Pages 4998: Gamma Knife Radiosurgery for Pituitary Tumors: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
Pietro Mortini To describe and evaluate outcomes of Gamma Knife radiosurgery (GK) for the treatment of pituitary tumors over the past twenty years, a systematic review and meta-analysis according to PRISMA statement was performed. Articles counting more than 30 patients were included. A weighted random effects models was used to calculate pooled outcome estimates. From 459 abstract reviews, 52 retrospective studies were included. Among them, 18 reported on non-functioning pituitary adenomas (NFPA), 13 on growth hormone (GH)-secreting adenomas, six on adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH)-secreting adenomas, four on prola...

Cardiovascular risk profile in Growth Hormone treated adults with a craniopharyngioma compared to a non-functioning pituitary adenoma: a national cohort study
CONCLUSION: This study suggests that overall cardiovascular risk profile is worse in craniopharyngioma patients with growth hormone deficiency compared to patients with NFPA. During growth hormone replacement therapy, patients with craniopharyngioma demonstrated an increase in BMI over time, where BMI remained stable in patients with NFPA. Also, diastolic blood pressure did not improve with antihypertensive drugs in craniopharyngioma as seen in patients with NFPA.PMID:34605771 | DOI:10.1530/EJE-21-0419 (Source: European Journal of Endocrinology)
