Abstract

Laparoscopic adrenalectomy has assumed a greater role in the surgical management of tumors of the adrenal gland. Accompanying this evolution from open to minimally invasive surgery is the inevitable question of whether such change has impacted contemporary indications for adrenalectomy. We explore this question through a review of current laparoscopic adrenalectomy series in the context of established indications for surgical extirpation.
