Introduction: Transsphenoidal endoscopic surgery resection of pituitary pathology has been ratified within the best options for successful approaches. To close the gap bone, you can use the nasoseptal flap, which achieved an adequate and secure closure, preventing complications such as persistent cerebrospinal fluid leaks. Among possible side effects of this flap anosmia-hyposmia noted. Aim: Our goal is to show the results obtained using the technique of nasoseptal flap and postoperative evaluation of smell. Material and method: We included 14 patients with a diagnosis of pituitary adenoma surgery in our department between December 2014 to December 2015. Various parameters were evaluated pre and post operative, specially olfactory function. All underwent transsphenoidal endoscopic technique. Performing dissection flap with the technical type Hadad. The tumor resection was performed by neurosurgeon, osteotomy covered with this flap. Results: Of the 14 patients, 13 reached the olfactory preoperative state. 1 patient remained with hyposmia.
