Ms. Zhang, a 53 year old woman from Nanling County, Wuhu City, often felt dizzy and uncomfortable in recent half a year. Her visual acuity decreased significantly, and her vision was blurred with double shadow. It has not been given attention until it affects the daily work and life. CT examination of the head of the local hospital showed that there was a "mass" in the brain, which needed surgical treatment. After many inquiries and family introduction, Ms. Zhang learned that Wuhu conch hospital in her hometown could treat this disease, so she came to our hospital for treatment.

After comprehensive examination and evaluation, Ms. Zhang was definitely diagnosed as sellar space occupying pituitary macroadenoma. Surgical treatment is recommended. In view of the deep location of tumor, large trauma to normal brain tissue caused by conventional craniotomy and long recovery time after operation, Deng Xiaosong, director of Neurosurgery of conch hospital, proposed to adopt advanced neuroendoscopic transnasal tumor resection, which was recognized by Ms. Zhang and her family members.

After improving the preoperative preparation, the neurosurgery team of our hospital successfully carried out the "intracranial endoscopic transsphenoidal pituitary tumor resection + sellar base reconstruction" on August 14. The operation took less than 2 hours. After the operation, Ms. Zhang's vision was clear and her head was not dizzy. After six days of careful nursing by the neurosurgery and neurosurgery team, she was discharged smoothly.

Ms. Zhang and her family highly affirmed and praised the medical technology and service of our hospital. Recently, we specially made a banner to express our gratitude to the Department of neurosurgery and critical care medicine.


Minimally invasive treatment

Neuroendoscopy belongs to the minimally invasive neurosurgery technology, which is the outstanding representative of the concept of minimally invasive neurosurgery. Like general endoscopic surgery, neuroendoscopic surgery has the advantages of small trauma, clear vision, wide range, good curative effect and less complications. It has been widely carried out in developed countries, but it has not been fully popularized in China, and even many large tertiary hospitals have not yet carried out such operations. Under the leadership of Deng Xiaosong, director of Neurosurgery Department of our hospital, the neurosurgery team completed the first case of neuroendoscopic brain tumor resection in our hospital, marking a new stage of Neurosurgery medical technology in our hospital.
