BACKGROUND: Identification of patients in whom adrenalectomy may be more difficult, can help in decision making in borderline and doubtful cases. The aim of the study was to determine patients criteria influencing difficulty of laparoscopic lateral transperitoneal adrenalectomy (LTA). MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study enrolled 275 patients who underwent LTA. We analyzed the impact of gender, age, history of previous abdominal surgery, body mass index, risk of anesthesia measured as ASA scale, size, localization (left/right), and histological type of the tumor on parameters reflecting the level of difficulty of the procedure: operative time, intraoperative blood loss, conversion rate and intraoperative complications rate...

Reninoma is a rare form of secondary hypertension. The present study reported a case of reninoma that coexisted with an adrenal adenoma in a young female with secondary hypertension during pregnancy. The patient, a 31-year-old female exhibiting hypertension for >1 year, developed a mass in the right adrenal gland, which was detected by an ultrasound scan in the 33rd gestational week. In addition, a well-defined solid mass on the left kidney was detected by a magnetic resonance imaging scan1 month subsequent to the termination of the pregnancy...

Von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) disease is an inherited syndrome with autosomal-dominant transmission, characterized by central nervous system and retinal hemangioblastomas, visceral cysts and tumors. Optimal surgical treatment, including its timing, remains a controversial topic. The present study reports the case of a 67-year-old female patient with adrenal and pancreatic manifestations of VHL. A laparoscopic cortex-sparing left adrenalectomy for a 4-cm pheochromocytoma and pancreatic enucleation for pancreatic polypeptidoma of the pancreas tail were performed during the same operative procedure...

BACKGROUND: Surgical resection of all sites of disease, in combination with effective systemic chemotherapy, offers the only potential chance for cure for patients with stage IV colorectal cancer (CRC). Coordinated multistage resection using a minimally invasive approach may provide optimal oncologic outcome while potentially offering the benefit of decreased morbidity. PATIENT: A 66-year-old women presented with transverse colon cancer and synchronous metastasis (CRLM) in segment IV involving the middle hepatic vein and main left portal pedicle, as well as the left adrenal gland...

BACKGROUND: Adrenal ganglioneuroma (AGN) is a rare tumor that originates from the gangliar cells of the sympathetic nervous system. It represents less than 5% of all adrenal masses. AGN occurs as a large mass, with benign behavior and no relevant symptoms and hormonal secretion, but it is often misdiagnosed because the preoperative radiological diagnosis is generally challenging. The aim of the present paper is to report the experience of a tertiary referral academic center regarding the management of AGN and review the relevant literature...

Adrenal tumors can vary from a benign adrenocortical adenoma with no hormonal secretion to a secretory adrenocortical malignancy (adrenocortical carcinoma) or a hormone-secreting tumor of the adrenal medulla (pheochromocytoma). Currently, laparoscopic adrenalectomy is regarded as the preferred surgical approach for the management of most adrenal surgical disorders, although there are no prospective randomized trials comparing this technique with open adrenalectomy. However, widespread adoption of robotic technology has positioned robotic adrenalectomy as an option in some medical centers...

BACKGROUND: Esophageal carcinomas are highly malignant tumors with a high frequency of lymph node and distant organ metastasis. Treatment for recurrent tumors is generally decided on an individual basis. Although multidisciplinary treatments involving chemotherapy, surgical resection, and radiation are performed, the prognosis remains poor. Here, we report a case of prolonged recurrence-free survival (38 months) after esophageal carcinoma surgery and subsequent laparoscopic adrenalectomy for right adrenal metastasis...

Adrenal ganglioneuroma (AGN) is an extremely rare and benign entity comprising Schwann cells and ganglion cells. If the lesion approaches to 6 cm, laparoscopic resection is considered as relative contraindication. Now we present a giant adrenal AGN in a 25-year-old male patient. After abdominal computed tomography (CT) scanning, the patient underwent an exploratory laparotomy with right adrenalectomy and histopathological examination further confirmed the lesions as giant AGN, which measured 7 cm × 5 cm × 3...

REVIEW
Alemanno Giovanni, Bergamini Carlo, Prosperi Paolo, Valeri Andrea
The history of adrenal surgery is longstanding. Firstly described in 1889 by Thornton, the open adrenalectomy has been for decades the only surgical approach to adrenal diseases. Nowadays, instead, several approaches to adrenal glands have been described in the literature, such as laparoscopic adrenalectomy, robotic-assisted procedure and single-incision technique. Actually, laparoscopic adrenalectomy is considered as the gold standard treatment for adrenal lesions. In fact, all functional tumors, including pheochromocytoma, are candidates for a laparoscopic approach in the absence of other contraindications...

Posterior retroperitonoscopic adrenalectomy (PRA) has become a standard approach to the adrenal gland. The aim of this study was to report an initial experience with the procedure following a proper preparatory phase highlighting the rapidity, safety and effectiveness by which it could be introduced into a surgeon's practice. Between May 2015 and July 2016, 14 PRAs were performed in 14 patients (9 females and 5 males). The average age was 46 years, BMI: 25.5 kg/m(2), and ASA score: 2. Indications included: incidenatloma (n = 5), Conn's adenoma (n = 5), and Cushing's adenoma (n = 4)...

PURPOSE: Most patients with primary aldosteronism (PA) show a significant decrease in kidney function after surgery. Glomerular hyperfiltration peculiar to PA can mask mild renal failure before surgery. The aim of this retrospective study was to investigate postoperative renal functional outcomes in PA patients from different viewpoints and to develop novel nomograms that can predict renal functional outcomes in PA patients after surgery. METHODS: 130 Japanese PA patients treated by unilateral laparoscopic adrenalectomy were retrospectively surveyed...

INTRODUCTION: The correct differentiation between unilateral and bilateral adrenal involvement in patients with primary aldosteronism (PA) is of utmost importance to justify surgical treatment. The aim of this study was to determine the accuracy of adrenal imaging compared to adrenal venous sampling (AVS), histopathology and postoperative outcome. METHODS: The data of all patients with unequivocal AVS who underwent unilateral laparoscopic adrenalectomy for primary aldosteronism between May 2004 and April 2015 were entered in this retrospective study...

Laparoscopic adrenalectomy became the gold standard for adrenal disease, from incidentaloma to cancer. Partial adrenalectomy is difficult to accept due to its technical difficulties as well as hemorrhagic risk and a consensus has not been reached. On the other hand, in selected cases of benign adrenal tumors, adrenalectomy may be futile, partial resections being perfectly justified and with lower hemorrhagic risks. For functioning tumors smaller than 3 cm with an anterior or lateral location, partial adrenalectomy may be indicated...

Myelolipomas represent 3-7% fromthe primary tumors of the adrenal gland. Most often they are incidental findings. In most cases are asymptomatic, rarely they present symptoms (pain, abdominal discomfort, hematuria or signs of internal hemorrhage). Histologically benign, this variety of tumor requires only local excision, in symptomatic forms. Their dimensions are generally up to 4-5 cm, so the laparoscopic approach seems the most appropriate. We present the case of a 65 years old patient, electively operated for a right adrenal tumor formation...

Adrenal corticotropin (ACTH) -independent macronodular adrenal hyperplasia (AIMAH) is a rare cause of Cushing's syndrome. Bilateral adrenalectomy is the treatment of choice, but lifetime steroid replacement is essential. Here we report a case of AIMAH whose hyperglycemia was improved following unilateral adrenalectomy. A 42-year-old woman with serious intellectual disability and intractable epilepsy presented with polydipsia. Casual blood glucose and hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) were 322 mg/dl and 8.5%, respectively...

PURPOSE: Succinate dehydrogenase B (SDHB) associated pheochromocytomas (PHEOs) are associated with a higher risk of tumor aggressiveness and malignancy. The aim of the present study was to evaluate (1) the frequency of germline SDHB mutations in apparently sporadic patients with PHEO who undergo preoperative genetic testing and (2) the ability to predict pathogenic mutations. METHODS: From 2012 to 2016, 82 patients underwent a PHEO surgical resection. Sixteen were operated in the context of hereditary PHEO and were excluded from analysis...
