Pseudocapsules were first identified in pituitary adenoma surgery in 1936. Since then, the distinction between pituitary capsules and pseudocapsules has been unclear, and the definitions of these entities have varied. In this study, pituitary capsules and extracapsular dissection were examined retrospectively, intra- and extrapseudocapsular resection was evaluated, and dissection of the pituitary adenoma and pseudocapsule was examined prospectively.
