Change in somatostatinergic tone of acromegalic patients according to the size of growth hormone-producing pituitary tumors.

The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between somatostatinergic tone (SST) and the size of growth hormone (GH)-producing pituitary...

Co-prevalence of other tumors in patients harboring pituitary tumors.
The cause of most pituitary tumors remains unknown, although a genetic contribution is recognized for some. The prevalence of pituitary tumors in the general population is high. Analyzing the Utah Population Database (UPDB), the authors investigated

Reevaluation of Acromegalic Patients in Long-Term Remission according to Newly Proposed Consensus Criteria for Control of Disease.
Acromegaly guidelines updated in 2010 revisited criteria of disease control: if applied, it is likely that a percentage of patients previously considered as cured might present postglucose GH nadir levels not adequately suppressed, with potential imp

Medical approach to pituitary tumors.
Transsphenoidal surgery and medical treatment are the cornerstones of the management of pituitary adenomas. However, the optimal therapy should be chosen based on the type of tumor, the patient, and the tumor characteristics. For nonfunctional adenom

Surgical approach to pituitary tumors.
Pituitary surgery is a continuously evolving specialty of neurosurgery that requires precise anatomical knowledge, technical skills, and an integrated appreciation of pituitary pathophysiology. It involves close cooperation between different speciali

Size change, shape change, and the growth space of a community.
Measures of biodiversity change such as the Living Planet Index describe proportional change in the abundance of a typical species, which can be thought of as change in the size of a community. Here, I discuss the orthogonal concept of change in rela

Effects of growth hormone excess on glycated albumin concentrations: Analysis in acromegalic patients.
Glycated albumin (GA) does not reflect glycemic control in patients with disorders of albumin metabolism. In the present study, we examined GA concentrations in acromegalic patients with growth hormone (GH) excess.

Comparison of muscular fatigue and tone of neck according to craniocervical flexion exercise and suboccipital relaxation in cervicogenic headache patients.
[Purpose] This study was conducted to compare and analyze influence of craniocervical flexion and suboccipitalis relaxation in cervicogenic headache patients of their cervical muscular fatigue, tone, and headache intensity. [Subjects and Methods] 30

Crooke's cell tumors of the pituitary.
Crooke's cell adenomas are a rare type of pituitary neoplasm. They produce adrenocorticotropic hormone causing Cushing's disease or may be endocrinologically silent. These tumors are usually invasive, may exhibit aggressive clinical behavior, and oft

[Aggressive and resistant-to-treatment pituitary tumors].
Pituitary adenomas define slow growing tumors developing from anterior pituitary. Most often benign, their treatment and subsequent management are based on transphenoidal surgery and/or medical therapy, generally without difficulties in clinical prac
