Robotic Versus Laparoscopic Adrenalectomy for Pheochromocytoma.

08:00 EDT 18th July 2013 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Robotic Versus Laparoscopic Adrenalectomy for Pheochromocytoma."

Although initial reports demonstrated the safety and feasibility of robotic adrenalectomy (RA), there are scant data on the use of this approach for pheochromocytoma. The aim of this study is to compare perioperative outcomes and efficacy of RA versus laparoscopic adrenalectomy (LA) for pheochromocytoma.
