Registry for Adenomas of the PItuitary and related Disorders (RAPID)
This study is a surgical registry for patients who undergo surgical resection of pituitary adenomas. The registry allows surgeons and researchers to obtain more accurate data from patients because it is prospective, meaning it data is entered as the patient is treated. One problem with all prior studies is that patient charts are reviewed after treatment which can result in inaccurate data and bias. Clinical data such as visual function, endocrinology function, surgery time, and length of stay will be acquired in addition to other variables. Samples of removed tumor will be stored in the Huntsman Tumor Biobank. Patients will also be provided quality-of-life surveys, brief evaluations done at the time of clinic follow-up or by email, that allows surgeons to better understand how surgical treatment is helping their patients' life at home, ability to reenter the workplace, etc.The purpose of this study is to evaluate best practices, improve the accuracy of epidemiology information, and improve patient outcomes. This registry is part of a multicenter study where the top centers of excellence in the treatment of pituitary adenoma are collaborating to study their data together. Future plans for the registry are to expand to other types of skull base tumors to better understand patient treatment and improve outcomes.
