“…The results are in line with those of previous studies. [5][6][7]15 It has been proposed that PAs in elderly adults are mainly NFPAs, 5,14,[16][17][18] which was demonstrated in the current study. Seven adrenocorticotropic hormone-secreting PAs in the older group were all silent corticotroph-cell adenomas, and four plurihormonal PAs also demonstrated hormone inactivity.…”

“…A small group presented with microadenomas, usually with prolactinomas or Cushing's disease, but we were able to evaluate 100 patients with macroadenomas fulfilling these criteria. While non-functioning adenomas constitute the majority of tumours in patients presenting to our clinic out of the w100-120 new referrals per annum, most such patients fall into an older age group; in this series the majority of patients presented with macroadenomas and a clinical presentation of acromegaly-gigantism rather than non-functioning tumours (24). In our patient group, no AIP variants were identified in any patient other than those with acromegaly; in two cases they were deemed to be definitely pathological, while in another two cases the issue regarding the pathogenicity of the variants is debated (23,25).…”

“…Complications at 30 days included transient diabetes insipidus (9.6%), syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion (8.7%), and delayed cerebrospinal fluid leak requiring lumbar drainage (0.9%) with no patient needing formal repair. 25 Thus older patients can undergo surgery by experienced neurosurgeons without major long term sequelae.…”
