Learning Objectives:

  1. Outline pre-operative evaluation of patients with pituitary adenomas (emphasis on cortisol—should all patients be tested? What is the free T4 level that is safe?).
  2. Outline post-operative management of patients with pituitary adenomas (emphasis on cortisol evaluation and replacement, diabetes insipidus and hyponatremia).
