The feasibility, safety, and results of 52 laparoscopic transperitoneal adrenalectomies were evaluated. METHODS: A total of 52 patients were included in the study based on thorough endocrinological and imaging assessment. 15 patients with Conn syndrome, 3 with Cushing syndrome, 15 with nonfunctioning adenoma, 14 with pheochromocytoma, 2 with adrenocortical cyst, 2 with adrenocortical lipoma and 1 with metastasis were considered eligible for adrenalectomy. Lesion size ranged from 1 to 12 cm (mean 4.53 cm). Concurrent surgical procedures were performed in 6 patients (11%). RESULTS: There was one conversion (during a left adrenalectomy), because of our learning curve. After we changed the technique, there was no more conversion. There were two (3.8%) postoperative complications: postoperative pancreatitis, one of the patients required re-operation (lavage and drainage). There was one wound infection. We had no postoperative mortality. Mean postoperative hospital stay was 6 days (range, 2-27 days). CONCLUSION: Patients with secreting and non-secreting adrenal lesions can be treated safely and effectively by laparoscopic adrenalectomy.
