BACKGROUND: Transsphenoidal surgery is the first-choice treatment for acromegaly. Postoperative remission is an important predictor of outcome. Various factors have been described as markers of remission: preoperative mean growth hormone (GH) and insulin-like growth factor-1 levels, cavernous sinus invasion, tumor size, extrapseudocapsular resection, and experience of the surgeon.
