[Ab] Abstract:Introduction: The most common clinical and neurological signs and symptoms of pituitary macroadenomas include headache, vision impairment and cranial nerve palsy. Case report: The patient presented in this article was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit at regional hospital; at admission, the patient was unconscious, he had convulsions and spasms, and a 3 -day history of headache and body temperature up to 41.5°C. The patient with suspected neuroinfection was transferred to the Department of Infectious Diseases of the Pomeranian Medical University in Szczecin (PMU), where cerebrospinal meningitis of bacterial etiology was established based on cerebrospinal fluid investigations and the presence of pituitary abscess was suggested based on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Magnetic resonance imaging findings included an extensive pathological lesion with the diameter of 27 × 28 × 38 mm located in the sellar-suprasellar region, with intensive peripheral contrast enhancement. The lesion protrudes into the sphenoid sinus through the lowered bottom of sella turcica and the fluid content has also been visualized in the sphenoid sinus. After 10 -day antibiotic therapy, the patient was transferred to neurosurgery ward for surgical treatment. The pathological lesion was partially evacuated during right frontotemporal craniotomy. The patient's general condition after the surgery was moderately severe; the patient was conscious, able to follow simple commands, presenting hemiparesis of the left side of the body, particularly affecting left lower limb and with speech disturbances. The signs of hypopituitarism affecting all hormonal axes were also observed and the patient was transferred to the Department of Endocrinology of the PMU for further treatment. Follow -up MRI scan continued to show the presence of pathological mass in the sellar -suprasellar region, which penetrated into the sphenoid sinus through damaged sellar bottom. After correction of reduced hormone levels and several weeks of antibiotic therapy, the patient was transferred to the Department of Neurosurgery of the PMU for further surgical treatment. Transsphenoidal resection of the sellar -suprasellar tumor and sphenoid sinus reconstruction were performed. Histopathology report confirmed the diagnosis of pituitary adenoma. The patient in relatively good condition, with partial hemiparesis on the left side of the body, able to stand with support, not able to walk, with speech disturbances and able to follow commands was transferred to the rehabilitation center. One year later, follow- -up MRI scan showed deepened sella turcica, filled with a mass corresponding to postoperative material. No evidence of disease progression has been found. Conclusion: Neuroinfection may be the first manifestation of pituitary macroadenoma.

[Ti] Title:Primary Empty Sella Syndrome and the Prevalence of Hormonal Dysregulation.

[Ab] Abstract:BACKGROUND: Empty sella is the neuroradiological or pathological finding of an apparently empty sella turcica containing no pituitary tissue. The prevalence of primary empty sella, i.e., empty sella without any discernible cause, is not precisely known; estimates range from 2% to 20%. Technical advances in neuroradiology have made empty sella an increasingly common incidental finding. It remains unclear whether, and to what extent, asymptomatic adult patients with an incidentally discovered empty sella should undergo diagnostic testing for hormonal disturbances. METHODS: To answer this question, the authors carried out a systematic search in the PubMed and Web of Science databases for publications that appeared in the period 1995-2016 and that contained the search term "empty sella" (registration: PROSPERO 2015: CRD42015024550). RESULTS: The search yielded 1282 hits. After the exclusion of duplicates, pediatric reports, case reports, and veterinary studies, 120 publications on primary empty sella syndrome (PES) were identified. 4 of these dealt with the prevalence of pituitary insufficiency in patients with PES as an incidental finding. Among patients with PES, the relative frequency of pituitary insufficiency in the pooled analysis was 52% (95% confidence interval [38; 65]). CONCLUSION: The data on PES as an incidental finding are too sparse to enable any evidence-based recommendation on the potential indications for hormone testing or its nature and extent. We advise basic neuroendocrinological testing (fasting cortisol, free thyroxine [fT4], estradiol or testosterone, insulin-like growth factor 1 [IGF-1], and prolactin). There is an unexplained discrepancy between the reported high prevalence of pituitary insufficiency among persons with PES and its low prevalence in epidemiologic studies. We suspect that the former may be high because of selection bias in the publications that we reviewed, or else the latter may be erroneously low.

[Ab] Abstract:BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to evaluate the morphometric analysis of sella turcica in a Turkish population according to gender, age, and dentofacial skeletal type and to investigate the prevalence of sella turcica shapes in different dentofacial skeletal types. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The lateral cephalometric radiographs of 362 patients (145 males, 217 females) were included and grouped by age, gender, and dentofacial skeletal patterns. Linear dimensions of sella turcica, which include the length, height, and diameter, were measured, and the shapes of sella turcica were evaluated. RESULTS: The anatomical variants of the sella turcica in this study were normal morphology (39.0%), followed by pyramidal shape (15.5%), double contour of floor (14.6%), oblique anterior wall (14.4%), irregular dorsum sella (8.6%), and sella turcica bridge (8.0%). Significant differences were found between sella turcica shapes and dentofacial skeletal types (p<0.01). Females had greater diameter size of sella turcica than males (p<0.01). In addition, the subjects in the 15-21 age group had larger sella turcica depths and diameters than the subjects in the 9-14 age group (p<0.05 andp<0.01, respectively). However, no significant differences were found between age groups in terms of sella turcica lengths (p>0.05). CONCLUSIONS: Results from this study showed that the sample had a higher rate of morphological variation (39% normal, 61% other types) in comparison with other populations or ethnic groups. The Class III patients had more irregularity (notching) types in the posterior part of the dorsum sella and fewer oblique anterior wall types than the others. Linear dimensions and morphological types of sella turcica in this study can be used as reference for additional investigators, such as radiologists, orthodontists, maxillofacial surgeons, and neurosurgeons, to interpret and plan surgical procedures involving the sellar region.

[Ab] Abstract:OBJECTIVES: The aim of this case-control study was to assess sella turcica area and skeletal maturity in children with unilateral cleft lip and palate (UCLP) and compare with those of non-cleft children. SETTING AND SAMPLE POPULATION: A total of 85 UCLP patients aged 7.5-17.08 years (Group 1: age 7-11 years, Group 2: age 11-14 years and Group 3: age 14-18 years) were compared with 85 control subjects without clefts who were divided into similar age groups. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Hand-wrist radiographs and cervical vertebra maturation stages (CVMS) were used to evaluate growth. Lateral cephalograms were traced, and reference points of sella were determined. Sella turcica area was measured using a digital planimeter. RESULTS: Comparison of overall growth on hand-wrist radiographs revealed no significant difference between cleft and non-cleft subjects. However, according to the chronological age groups, Group 1-UCLP showed statistically significant delay in skeletal maturation when compared with the age-matched control subjects (P = .05). This difference was due to the delay among male subjects (P = .05). As for CVMS, more significant maturation delay was observed in Group 1-UCLP (P = .001) and was attributable to both male and female subjects (P = .05). Comparison of sella turcica area showed no significant difference between UCLP patients and controls. CONCLUSION: Although children with CLP showed significant delay in growth when they are younger compared with the non-cleft children, sella turcica area measurements were similar for individuals in both groups.

[Ti] Title:Collision tumors composed of meningioma and growth hormone-secreting pituitary adenoma in the sellar region: Case reports and a literature review.

[La] Language:eng
[Ab] Abstract:RATIONALE: Collision tumor is a rare disease that represents the coexistence of two histologically distinct neoplasms in the same area without histological admixture or an intermediate cell population zone. To our best knowledge, 13 cases besides our 2 cases have been reported till now, and our report represents the first publication regarding a collision tumor composed of growth hormone (GH)-secreting pituitary adenoma and sellar meningioma. PATIENT CONCERNS: We collected two cases of collision tumors composed of meningioma and GH-secreting adenoma in the sellar region from 2014 to 2015 at Peking Union Medical College Hospital (PUMCH). DIAGNOSIS: Two cases were diagnosed with solid sellar tumors, and two tumor types were suspected with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Blood hormone tests revealed increased insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) and GH levels. INTERVENTIONS: Both cases underwent transsphenoidal microsurgical resection of pituitary adenoma. OUTCOMES: The tumor was completely resected, and the pathological examination after the operation revealed meningioma and GH-secreting pituitary adenoma. LESSONS: Collision tumors consisting of pituitary adenomas with other sellar neoplasms are rare. Histological examination is necessary because preoperative studies cannot guarantee an accurate diagnosis. If a collision tumor is suspected prior to operation, a craniotomy may need to be considered before other operation methods to avoid reoperation.

[Ti] Title:The mechanism in junctional failure of thoraco-lumbar fusions. Part I: Biomechanical analysis of mechanisms responsible of vertebral overstress and description of the cervical inclination angle (CIA).

[Ab] Abstract:PURPOSE: The purpose of the study is to describe the biomechanical theory explaining junctional breakdowns in thoraco-lumbar fusions, by taking the example of vertebral compression fractures. Also, a new angle, the cervical inclination angle (CIA), describing the relative position of the head at each vertebral level, is presented. METHODS: For the CIA, the data were collected from 137 asymptomatic subjects of a prospective database, containing clinical and radiologic informations. All the 137 subjects have an Oswestry score less than 15% and a pain score less than 2/10 and were part of a previously published study describing the Odontoïd-hip axis angle (ODHA). For each vertebral level from T1 to T12, the CIA as well as the vertical and horizontal distances was measured in reference to the sella turcica (ST), and a vertical line drawn from the ST. Average values and correlation coefficients were calculated. RESULTS: The CIA is an angle whose average value varies very little between T1 and T5 (74.9°-76.85°), and then increases progressively from T6 to T12. T1-T5 vertebra are always in line within the thoracic spine for each subject and can be considered as a straight T1-T5 segment. In addition, it was found that the vertical inclination of T1-T5 segment is correlated with the C7 slope (R  = 0.6383). CONCLUSION: The T1-T5 segment inclination is correlated with the C7 slope, and because the latter defines the cervical curve as previously shown, the T1-T5 segment can be considered as the base from which the cervical spine originates. Its role is, thus, similar to the pelvis and its sacral slope, which is the base from which the lumbar spine originates. The CIA along with the ODHA, which describes the adequacy of the global balance in young and elderly asymptomatic populations, are two important parameters that could help us to better understand junctional breakdowns in thoraco-lumbar fusion surgeries.

[Ab] Abstract:Pituitary pathology is one area of endocrine pathology that is highly dependent on immunohistochemistry. There is a wide range of disorders that occur in and around the sella turcica, and the distinction of tumor-like lesions from neoplasms requires careful evaluation. The diagnosis, prognosis, and predictive features of neoplasms in the sellar region are all dependent on the application and interpretation of biomarkers of cell differentiation, hormonal activity, subcellular morphology, and proliferation. As in hematopathology, the number of biomarkers has increased dramatically and continues to increase. Fortunately, some of the biomarkers provide information that was initially dependent on electron microscopy; therefore, the need for this additional technology has been reduced to only rare unusual tumors. In this review, we provide a simple approach to understanding the importance of the various biomarkers that are used to ensure the correct diagnosis and provide the treating clinicians with tools to guide appropriate patient management and surveillance.

[Ab] Abstract:INTRODUCTION: Goldenhar syndrome is a rare disease with hemifacial microsomia and craniofacial disorders originating from the first and second branchial arches, such as ocular, auricular, and vertebral anomalies. The complexity and variety of the ways in which the disease presents itself usually need several examinations. In this study, we aimed to evaluate both craniofacial and vertebral skeletal anomalies and asymmetries between the nonaffected and affected sides in patients with Goldenhar syndrome by using cone-beam computed tomography. METHODS: Ten patients (7-14 years old; 6 boys, 4 girls) were evaluated via NewTom 5G cone-beam computed tomography (QR srl, Verona, Italy) with a large field of view (18 × 16 cm). Ten anatomic facial landmarks were identified to measure the following distances bilaterally: sella turcica (ST)-mandibular angle, ST-condyle, ST-mastoid, ST-mental foramen, ST-fronto zygomatic suture, ST-zygomatic temporal suture, ST-zygomatic facial foramen, ST-sphenopalatine fossa, mandibular angle-mandibular symphysis, and mandibular angle-condyle. The following 6 volumes were calculated bilaterally: orbit, maxillary sinus, condyle, external ear canal, middle ear, and internal auditory canal. These measurements were performed to assess skeletal asymmetries to compare the nonaffected side with the affected side by the Wilcoxon test. Cervical spine anomalies were classified into fusion anomalies and posterior arch deficiencies. RESULTS: All patients showed a deficit of skeletal development on the affected side. Statistically significant differences (0.001 ≤ P value ≤ 0.043) between the nonaffected and affected sides were recorded for all measurements, except for ST-frontozygomatic suture, mandibular angle-mandibular symphysis, and maxillary sinus volume. Vertebral fusion anomalies and posterior arch deficiencies were found in 7 and 4 patients, respectively. CONCLUSIONS: Cone-beam computed tomography with a large field of view was able to accurately identify craniofacial and vertebral skeletal anomalies, and to quantify asymmetries between the nonaffected and affected sides for an efficient maxillofacial treatment planning.

[Ab] Abstract:To evaluate effect of sellar reconstruction during pituitary adenoma resection surgery by the endoscopic endonasal transsphenoidal approach using artificial cerebral dura mater patch.This was a retrospective study of 1281 patients who underwent endoscopic transsphenoidal resection for the treatment of pituitary adenomas between December 2006 and May 2014 at the Neurosurgery Department of the People's Liberation Army General Hospital. The patients were classified into 4 grades according to intraoperative cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leakage site. All patients were followed up for 3 months by telephone and outpatient visits.One thousand seventy three (83.7%) patients underwent sellar reconstruction using artificial dura matter patched outside the sellar region (method A), 106 (8.3%) using artificial dura matter patched inside the sellar region (method B), and 102 (8.0%) using artificial dura matter and a mucosal flap (method C). Method A was used for grade 0-1 leakage, method B for grade 1 to 2 leakage, and method C for grade 2 to 3 leakage. During the 3-month follow-up, postoperative CSF leakage was observed in 7 patients (0.6%): 2 among patients who underwent method B (1.9%) and 5 among those who underwent method C (4.9%). Meningitis was diagnosed in 13 patients (1.0%): 2 among patients who underwent method A (0.2%), 4 among those who underwent method B (3.8%), and 7 among those who underwent method C (6.7%).Compared with other reconstruction methods, sellar reconstruction surgery that only use artificial dura mater as repair material had a low rate of complications.

[Ab] Abstract:The objective of the present study was to determine the biological age of the unrecognized individuals based on the analysis of CT-scanograms of the skull and the craniovertebral region in the sagittal projection. We investigated the structure of the spongy substance of the clinoid plate of the sella turcica and the clivus of the cranium, involution of the vertebrae configuration in the medial atlantoaxial articulation, frontal and sphenoidal sinuses. A total of 80 skulls of Caucasoid individuals at the age ranging from 4 to 84 years belonging to an Eastern Slavonic population (free from the pathological lesions in the above cranial structures) were available for the examination. The results of the multifactorial analysis gave evidence of the possibility to estimate the age of individual subjects based on the comprehensive aggregate qualitative and quantitative characteristic in the framework of the linear regression model by making use of the age-related changes in the frontal and sphenoidal sinuses, the sella turcica and the clivus of the cranium, the first and the second cervical vertebrae with an accuracy to within 6 years. It is concluded that the application of the systems for the automated statistical analysis of the images for the purposes of forensic medical expertise would allow to obtain the results of great practical and scientific value.
