Abstract

The supine position has been routinely used for transphenoidal microsurgery in our department since 1973. We had 404 patients, 387 of whom had pituitary microor macroadenomas. It is always satisfactory, allowing a very good control of intraoperative arterial pressure and prevention of air embolism. It is also comfortable for both surgeons.
