5th International ACC Symposium: Surgical Considerations in the Treatment of Adrenocortical Carcinoma: 5th International ACC Symposium Session: Who, When and What Combination?

Horm Cancer. 2016 Feb;7(1):24-8. doi: 10.1007/s12672-015-0243-0. Epub 2016 Jan 4.


Significant progress has been made in the understanding of how surgical technique impacts outcome in patients with adrenal cancer. Current and future areas of investigation center on expanding the role of surgery in patients with locally recurrent or metastatic disease, use of neoadjuvant therapy as a bridge to surgery, the impact of formal lymphadenectomy on survival, and improved diagnosis, prognosis, and selection of patients for surgery and other treatments using morphomic analysis.
