    Optical Coherence Tomography in Pituitary Adenomas Serves as a Predictor for Visual Functionality Postresection

    Introduction: The current gold standard for evaluating functional impairment of pituitary tumors is Humphrey visual field (HVF) testing. However, optical coherence tomography (OCT) may serve as an alternative in predicting return of visual function in postoperative surgically resected patients diagnosed with a pituitary adenoma. Methods: After application of exclusion criteria, we identified 12 patients with pituitary adenomas that had been treated surgically at our institution from 2017 to 2019. Patient pre- and postoperative visual acuity, mean deviation, HVF features, retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) characteristics, retinal ganglion cell layer (RGCL) thickness, and duration of symptoms were retrospectively reviewed. Results: The ...
