Abstract Vascular complication of transsphenoidal surgery can lead to mortality and serious morbidity. In a series of 3,061 transsphenoidal operations for pituitary disease, 24 such complications were encountered, seven of which were fatal. The anatomic substrate for such complications is discussed, along with technical aspects of surgery and other methods for the avoidance of vascular complications.
