Abstract

in English, Russian

AIM:

To determine the optimal surgical approach in patients with abdominal and retroperitoneal manifestations of Recklinghausen's disease.

MATERIAL AND METHODS:

There were 4 patients (3 women and 1 man) with neurofibromatosis type I who were treated at Vishnevsky National Medical Research Center of Surgery.

RESULTS:

There were 3 robot-assisted procedures: excision of retroperitoneal tumors (plexiform neurofibroma and schwannoma) in 2 cases and right adrenal pheochromocytoma in 1 patient. We also included 1 clinical case of conventional surgery for neurofibromatosis type I followed by multiple gastrointestinal stromal duodenal and intestinal tumors. In one case, postoperative period was complicated by fluid accumulation in the bed of previously removed tumor that required US-assisted drainage. Postoperative period was uneventful in other cases.

CONCLUSION:

Robot-assisted surgery is safe and effective in patients with Recklinghausen's disease followed by single abdominal and retroperitoneal tumors. It is more expedient to choose conventional technique for multiple tumors located in different parts of retroperitoneal space or abdominal cavity.
