The data provide the first significant evidence for improvement in olfactory performance in patients with acromegaly after transsphenoidal surgery (TSS) of growth hormone-producing adenomas. Furthermore, postoperative olfactory disturbance in patients treated with transnasal TSS is more frequent than previously reported. Nevertheless, recurrent transnasal TSS can be performed successfully, even multiple times, and does not involve a higher risk of nasal complications.
