par  Armando BASSO (Department of Neurosurgery , Buenos Aires University – Argentine),  membre étranger
.                 

During the last 45 years we have operated around 3300 pituitary tumors.  
90% of them through  transphenoidal route. 
The surgical results have been improved today with the multimodal treatment that includes pharmacotherapy, radiotherapy and  radiosurgery. 
The determination of the degree of aggressiveness in the invasive adenomas  is still one the most challenging   problems to solve. 
The modern endoscopical techniques  is an important topic to evaluate.
We will discuss also  the global management  of these patients and the future possibilities.
