AGUILERA BAZAN, A. et al. Open and laparoscopic adrenalectomy: 10 years r. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2006, vol.30, n.10, pp.1025-1030. ISSN 0210-4806.
We present a 10 years open adrenalectomy review in our Service and the beginning of laparoscopic adrenalectomy in the last year as a part of the retroperitoneal laparoscopic program at the Hospital Universitario La Paz . The first laparoscopic adrenalectomy was done after 21 retroperitoneal laparoscopic surgeries. Our initial experience has been so good that we have reduced the contraindications for this technique and we have increased the number of laparoscopic surgery cases.
