BACKGROUND Nodular adrenal hyperplasia (NAH) may mimic the biochemical characteristics of an aldosterone-producing adenoma. The authors evaluated the outcomes of unilateral laparoscopic adrenalectomy in the setting of lateralizing aldosterone hypersecretion by NAH. METHODS Retrospective review of consecutive patients who underwent a laparoscopic adrenalectomy for primary hyperaldosteronism owing to NAH was performed. Patient demographics, perioperative symptoms, medications, radiographic… CONTINUE READING
