Large tumors of the adrenal gland represent a limit to the laparoscopic approach, but disease type and local tissue reaction play a significant role in the success of the procedure. This video demonstrates the laparoscopic approach and removal of a 12cm right-sided pheochromocytoma, associated with limited local inflammation. Difficult technical points as well as tips to overcome difficulties are also outlined.
