Macroadenoma Recurrence Rate

Question: What percentage of those with pituitary macroadenomas who have transsphenoidal surgery have a recurrence?

Answer: For macroadenomas causing Cushing’s, the recurrence rate is about 10% in 10 years. These are often invasive lesions and can be difficult to cure with surgery alone.
