Gamma-Knife Radiosurgery Is Promising for Patients With Pituitary Adenoma: Presented at AANS

By Liz Meszaros

PHILADELPHIA -- May 5, 2010 -- Gamma-knife radiosurgery may effectively achieve tumour control in patients who have recurrent residual pituitary adenoma, researchers stated here at the 2010 Annual Meeting of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS).

"Radiosurgery is an excellent treatment option for patients with recurrent or residual pituitary tumours," noted investigator Jason P. Sheehan, MD, PhD, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, Virginia, speaking here on May 3. "It offers a high rate of tumour and endocrine control. As such, it allows most patients to avoid repeat open surgery or lifelong, expensive medical management."
