Factor Affecting Visual Recovery in Pitutary Adenoma
Keywords:pituitary adenoma, visual effect of pituitary tumor
Introduction: Pitutary adenomas account for 10-15% of all brain tumours, it is the third most frequently diagnosed brain tumour .The growing of pituitary tumors may compress the surrounding structures especially optic nerve, cause visual field defects including bitemporal hemianopia , visual disturbance. Aims and objective: To estimate the effect of factors affecting visual recovery in pituitary adenoma .Materials and method: this is a prospective, observational study will be conducted on patients of pituitary tumour admitted between January 2020 and January 2022 in the department of Neurosurgery at the G. R. Medical College &J.A. Group of Hospitals, Gwalior(M.P.) Result & Conclusion: In our study 46.7% patients have duration of symptoms < 6 months and 6/6 - 6/24 visual acuity was present in 73.3% patients & 13.3% had optic atrophy(primary/secondary), 43.3%patients had bi-temporal hemianopia. In our study Suprasellar extension was present in 90% of patients & Vascular invasion was seen in 26.7% of patients. Good results are seen in patients who have a lesser duration of symptoms, and good pre-operative visual acuity has improved the final visual outcome
