Large adrenal tumors pose varied challenges to surgeons in terms of diagnosis, planning surgical approach, and also intra-operative difficulties in resection. The aim of this study is to discuss challenges in the management of large and difficult adrenal lesions. A retrospective analysis was done on data of all patients with large adrenal lesions/paragangliomas managed from 1 June 2016 to 30 August 2018. Forty-eight patients with adrenal lesions underwent treatment in 2 years duration. Pain in…

Laparoscopic Adrenalectomy for Pheochromocytoma Versus Other Surgical Indications
Evaluated the outcomes of consecutive laparoscopic adrenalectomies performed at a high-volume referral center and compared operative results for pheochromocytomas with that of other adrenal diseases, finding laparoscope adrenalectomy is a safe and appropriate surgical technique for most adrenal lesions, including phechromocyTomas.
Posterior Retroperitoneoscopic Adrenalectomy: Preferred Technique for Removal of Benign Tumors and Isolated Metastases
Posterior retroperitoneoscopic adrenalectomy is safe, avoids intra-abdominal adjacent organ mobilization, is unaffected by the presence of intra-ABdominal adhesions, and is possible in obese patients.

Posterior Retroperitoneoscopic Adrenalectomy: Lessons Learned within Five Years
Posterior retroperitoneoscopic adrenalectomy is a safe method that has become a standard procedure in endocrine surgery and depends on tumor type, tumor size, gender, and extent of resection.
Laparoscopic adrenalectomy for large adrenal masses: pushing the envelope.
It is suggested that laparoscopic adrenalectomy for masses larger than 8cm can produce comparable results concerning hospital stay, conversion to open surgery rate, and pathologic outcome in comparison with results for adrenal masses smaller than 8 cm.
