Abstract

Laparoscopic adrenal surgery is a standard procedure for the management of benign adrenal pathology and small malignant tumors. There has been an increasing interest over the last few years in the use of laparoendoscopic single-site surgery (LESS). From recent literatures, LESS adrenalectomy was demonstrated that this technique was safe and feasible despite the relatively difficult anatomical location of the adrenal gland. We reviewed the surgical techniques and outcomes of LESS adrenalectomy including robot-assisted approach and gave an overview of the current role of LESS in adrenalectomy.
