All contributions are submitted to the complete editorial board prior to book of any quantity. Our sequence isn't really meant to compete with the courses of unique medical papers in different neurosurgical journals. Our purpose is, relatively, to offer fields of neurosurgery and similar parts during which vital fresh advances were made. The contributions are written by means of experts within the given fields and represent the 1st a part of each one quantity. within the moment a part of each one quantity, we post unique descriptions of ordinary operative systems, supplied via skilled clinicians; in those articles the authors describe the concepts they hire and clarify the benefits, problems and hazards excited about a number of the approaches. This half is meant basically to aid younger neurosurgeons of their postgraduate education. although, we're confident that it'll even be invaluable to skilled, absolutely knowledgeable neurosurgeons.

The results are good, with recovery of vision and improvement of visual field defects 67,94. Great care must be taken in filling the sellar cavity and closing its floor, to avoid the formation of a secondary empty sella, or a fistula with cerebrospinal rhinorrhoea.

Operation: The sella, reached via the trans-sphenoidal route, was found to be principally filled by soft, almost liquefied adenomatous tissue, which was removed by aspiration and curettage (Fig. 26). The arachnoid diverticulum was not damaged. Post-operative 'course uneventful and biological regression of acromegaly. Comments: GH-secreting adenoma with spontaneous liquefaction, transient arrest of the acromegaly and secondary formation of an empty sella.
