Sažetak
Transsphenoidal approach to pituitary tumors was for a long time reserved for sellar region tumors, whereas tumors expanding into extrasellar region were treated by transcranial approach. With the development of surgical equipment and gaining surgical experience, indications for the transsphenoidal approach and its modifications have become wider and ever more frequently used for pituitary tumors with extrasellar expansion. During the twenty-five years of performing pituitary surgery, we have operated on more than 1400 tumors of the sellar region using the transsphenoidal approach and its modifications. The novel transsphenoidal endoscopic approach is strongly taking more place in pituitary surgery, advancing the possibilities of the standard transsphenoidal approach. A review is presented of surgical approaches to pituitary tumors.
