This is the first of a two-part review on adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC), a rare and aggressive malignancy that often presents at an advanced stage. Most patients present with symptoms related to cortisol and/or androgen excess. Appropriate biochemical evaluation and imaging is important in assessing the extent of disease, operative planning, and oncologic surveillance for patients with ACC. For patients with locoregional disease, potential cure requires margin-negative resection, and accumulating evidence suggests that regional lymphadenectomy should be performed...

BACKGROUND Adrenocortical oncocytic neoplasms (AONs) are extremely rare tumors. AONs are classified as: oncocytoma (AO), oncocytic neoplasm of uncertain malignant potential (AONUMP), and oncocytic carcinoma (AOC). Among the 162 reported cases of AONs in the literature, 30 cases were classified as malignant. Adrenalectomy is the treatment of choice for AON. CASE REPORT We report the case of a 48-year-old man with a primitive 12-cm mass affecting the right adrenal gland, detected by ultrasonography during follow-up for alcoholic liver cirrhosis...

Primary adrenal teratoma is a rare type of cancer. Of the 338 patients who underwent adrenalectomy during this study, only 2 (aged 69 and 29 years) were diagnosed with adrenal teratoma and underwent laparoscopic retroperitoneal adrenalectomy. For the purposes of the present study, the term 'adrenal teratoma' was searched in the PubMed database, and 237 articles published between June 1952 and March 2017 were retrieved. However, we were only able to identify 10 relevant studies. In total, these studies reported a series of 18 cases of primary adrenal teratoma in patients aged >16 years, another 8 cases of adult adrenal retroperitoneal teratoma, and 7 cases of adrenal teratoma in children aged <16 years...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate whether the technical advantages of robotic-assisted surgery over standard laparoscopy, which are well established for complex renal surgery, lead to variable surgical outcomes between laparoscopic adrenalectomy (LA) and robotic adrenalectomy (RA). METHODS: Using the National Cancer Database, we identified patients who underwent LA or RA for non-metastatic primary adrenal malignancy from 2010-2013. Primary outcomes were need for open conversion, surgical margin status, and performance of regional lymphadenectomy...

Introduction: Robot-assisted laparoscopic surgery (RALS) has become a widely used technology in urology. Urological procedures that are now being routinely performed robotically are: radical prostatectomy (RP), radical cystectomy (RC), renal procedures - mainly partial nephrectomy (PN), and pyeloplasty, as well as ureteric re-implantation and adrenalectomy. Methods: This non-systematic review of the literature examines the effectiveness of RALS compared with conventional laparoscopic surgery for the most relevant urological procedures...

BACKGROUND: Over the last few decades, robotic surgery with the da Vinci system has become increasingly prevalent. Endocrine surgeons are witnessing a rapid growth in enthusiasm for robotic approaches for treating thyroid, parathyroid, and adrenal disease. For carefully selected patients, the robotic system may be the preferred technique, although its use remains controversial and indications are in evolution. The goal of this article is to review current robotic procedures for thyroidectomy, parathyroidectomy, and adrenalectomy, and scrutinize the existing literature for application of these approaches...

We encountered 2 patients (a 33-year-old woman and a 66-year-old man) with an aldosterone-producing adenoma (APA) and a left accessory spleen. The patients' primary symptoms were hypertension and hypokalemia, and both had elevated serum aldosterone levels. Preoperative computed tomography a left suprarenal retroperitoneal mass and laparoscopic left adrenalectomy was performed in both cases. The postoperative microscopic examination revealed splenic tissue. Both patients experienced relief of their hypertension and hypokalemia, with an uneventful recovery...

Endocrine active adrenal tumors are associated with a relevant risk of complications during surgery, either due to direct hemodynamic effects of the hormone excess or due to hormone related comorbidities. Over the last decades, careful preoperative evaluation and improved peri-interventional medical management of affected patients has resulted in a significant reduction of perioperative complications. In addition, improvement in anesthesia and surgical techniques with the feasibility of laparoscopic adrenalectomy have contributed to reduce morbidity...

A 34-year-old mother with diabetes mellitus for 6 years presented in the late second trimester of her third pregnancy with new onset hypertension and characteristic hyperadrenergic spells. Clinical examination was unremarkable except a blood pressure of 170/110 mmhg. She had an elevated 24 hour urinary normetanephrine level with ultrasonic evidence of a hyperechoic hypervascular well-defined right supra renal mass of 6 x 5 cm in size which was very suggestive of a pheochromocytoma. Her management decisions were made by a multidisciplinary team which decided to deliver the baby by lower segment cesarean section (LSCS) as the pregnancy was advanced and to proceed with interval adrenalectomy after contrast enhanced computer tomography (CECT) of the abdomen with adrenal protocol...

BACKGROUND: Cushing syndrome coexisting with multiple myeloma has been previously described in a few reports. Overlapping clinical manifestations can lead to misdiagnoses. CASE PRESENTATION: We presented an extremely rare case of a 33-year-old Thai woman with concomitant kappa light chain myeloma with adrenal Cushing syndrome, both of which were related to skeletal manifestations. A precedence report indicated that treatment of the Cushing syndrome could exacerbate the myeloma symptoms...

Importance: Laparoscopic adrenalectomy is the gold standard for most adrenal disorders and its frequency in the United States is increasing. While national and administrative databases can adjust for patient factors, comorbidities, and institutional variations, granular disease-specific data that may significantly influence the incidence of perioperative complications and length of stay (LOS) are lacking. Objective: To investigate factors associated with perioperative complications and LOS after laparoscopic adrenalectomy...

INTRODUCTION: Pheochromocytomas are infrequent tumors arised from the chromaphine cells of the adrenal sympathetic system. The excess of circulating catecholamines may lead to different cardiovascular disorders from silent alterations of the myocardial conduction to different forms of cardiomyopathy. The onset as cardiogenic shock is exceptional. PRESENTATION OF CASE: A 35-year-old male, with a known history of acute myopericarditis of unknown origin which debuted as acute pulmonary edema, was admitted with dyspnea in the context of a new heart failure episode with pulmonary edema...
