Sella turcica was also drawn as a structure from the tip of the dorsum sella to that of the tuberculum sellae as seen on the radiograph.
Length (L): Distance from the tip of the dorsum sellae to that of the tuberculum sellae.
Background: Tuberculum sellae meningiomas (TSMs) present a special symptom because of the adherence and compression to the optic nerve, optic artery, and the chiasm.
Tuberculum sellae meningiomas: functional outcome in a consecutive series treated microsurgically.
The anthropometric measures included the glabella-opisthocranion [11], nasion-dorsum sellae [12], dorsum sellae- opisthocranion [13], nasion-basion [14], nasion-opisthion [15], basion-opisthion [16], prosthion-basion [17], basion-vertex [11] and the clival angle [18].
Dorsum sellae (DS): A square portion of bone on the body of the sphenoid posterior to the sella turcica or hypophysial fossa.
Patient was diagnosed to have tuberculum sellae meningioma and planned for surgery.
11] Diaphragm sellae tumors are associated with higher rates of Diabetes Insipidus.
It is important to differentiate the rare diaphragma sellae meningioma from the pituitary adenoma; because their surgical approach is different.
Meningiomas in this region originate from the tuberculum sella, anterior clinoid processes, diaphragma sellae, planum sphenoidale and upper clivus (Figure 9).
The posterior boundary of the pituitary fossa is formed by the dorsum sellae, the supero-lateral angles of which are raised to form the posterior clinoid process.
Small sella turcica are notable in humans who either have an absent or a partial formed diaphragma sellae.
