Abstract

The description of the laparoscopic left adrenalectomy covers all aspects of the surgical procedure used for the management of benign disorders (Conn's syndrome, small hormone-secreting tumors, Cushing's syndrome, small virilizing adenoma, incidentaloma> 5 cm). Operating room set up, position of patient and equipment, instruments used are thoroughly described. The technical key steps of the surgical procedure are presented in a step by step way: exploration, exposure, dissection, ligation of the veins, ligation of the arteries, end of dissection/extraction.
