Abstract

Controversies exist in the best surgical approach (open vs. laparoscopy) to large adrenal tumours without peri-operative evidence of primary carcinoma, mainly due to possible capsular disruption of an unsuspected malignancy. In addition, intra-operative blood loss, conversion rate, operative time, and hospital stay may be increased with laparoscopy.
Applicability of laparoscopic approach to the resection of large adrenal tumours: a retrospective cohort study on 200 patients / Feo, Carlo V; Portinari, Mattia; Maestroni, Umberto; DEL RIO, Paolo; Severi, Silvia; Viani, Lorenzo; Pravisani, Riccardo; Soliani, Giorgio; Zatelli, Maria Chiara; Ambrosio, Maria Rosaria; Tong, Jenny; Terrosu, Giovanni; Bresadola, Vittorio. - In: SURGICAL ENDOSCOPY. - ISSN 0930-2794. - 30:8(2016), pp. 3532-3540.
