KPS Status- Percent Change (N = 34)

2018

In 91% of patients, performance status either remained stable or improved after pituitary surgery. Functional status is measured by the Karnofsky Performance Scale, a widely used 11-point scale correlating to percentage values from 100% (no evidence of disease, no symptoms) to 0% (death). Change in KPS status was defined as a change of ≥ 20 points.
