The authors report the case of a non functioning adrenal adenoma, incidentally diagnosed and excised through a laparoscopic approach. Indications to adrenalectomy for such a pathological condition and surgical technique are reviewed and discussed. In consideration of the relatively rare disease and of the scant literature on minimally-invasive approach to right adrenalectomy, it seemed worth reporting this case and the technical skills performed to ease this operation through laparoscopy.

Abstract

The authors report the case of a non functioning adrenal adenoma, incidentally diagnosed and excised through a laparoscopic approach. Indications to adrenalectomy for such a pathological condition and surgical technique are reviewed and discussed. In consideration of the relatively rare disease and of the scant literature on minimally-invasive approach to right adrenalectomy, it seemed worth reporting this case and the technical skills performed to ease this operation through laparoscopy.
