Laparoscopic adrenalectomy has now become the new "gold standard" for the surgical treatment of most adrenal lesions. Here we show a film of right adrenalectomy for pheochromocytoma, demonstrating the conventional "no touch technique" where the dissection takes place around the gland without really manipulating it. The film also demonstrates the anatomical landmarks as well as the principles and sequence of vascular control.
