Laparoscopic adrenalectomy

This video shows a left laparoscopic adrenalectomy of a 6cm pheochromocytoma, which as such qualifies as a large adrenal tumor ‘LAT’. Laparoscopic adrenalectomy, including transperitoneal and retroperitoneal approaches, is considered the gold standard for surgical treatment of adrenal tumors. Management of LATs is challenging due to possible difficulties with the resection as well as the risk of malignancy. Pheochromocytoma can occur as part of Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Type II, which develops from a mutation of the RET-protooncogene.

This video was presented and awarded the first video prize at the 21st TRIPARTITE MEETING for Minimally Invasive Surgery, organized by the Swiss-MIS (https://swiss-mis.ch) und the ASRCC (https://asrcc.ch).
