Patients undergoing transphenoidal pituitary adenoma resection and patients with transcranial surgery of tumors close to the pituitary gland and hypothalamus.
- diagnostic accuracy, i.e. difference of copeptin levels between patients without and patients with postoperative DI, of copeptin in the diagnosis of water disturbance in neurosurgical patients [ Time Frame: daily during hospital stay of the patient, on average 1 week ]daily blood sampling will allow to diagnose DI or SIADH during hospital stay. Copeptin levels will be compared between patients with uncomplicated postoperative course and patients with development of DI or SIADH.
