The nasal septum approach was suitable for most patients with pituitary adenoma. The hierarchy of the anatomy was distinctive and easily controlled.
Objective: This study aimed to compare three different surgery approaches for pituitary adenoma excision.
Methods: A total of 162 patients underwent pituitary adenoma excision through the sphenoid sinus approach. Among patients, five underwent the sublabio-septo-sphenoidal approach (abbreviated as “sublabio approach”), seven underwent the sphenoid sinus approach and 150 underwent the nasal septum approach.
