Minimally Invasive Adrenalectomy: Technical Aspects of the Laparoscopic and the Robotic Approach

Chirurgia (Bucur). Jan-Feb 2020;115(1):80-88. doi: 10.21614/chirurgia.115.1.80.


Adrenalectomy is nowadays a procedure routinely performed by minimally invasive surgery. In this article we aim to describe in depth our technique for laparoscopic and robotic left and right adrenalectomies, by using four cases and discussing the advantages and disadvantages of each technique.

Keywords: adrenalectomy; laparoscopicsurgery; roboticsurgery.
