Adrenalectomy is nowadays a procedure routinely performed by minimally invasive surgery. In this article we aim to describe in depth our technique for laparoscopic and robotic left and right adrenalectomies, by using four cases and discussing the advantages and disadvantages of each technique.
This article was published in the following journal.

The focus of this article is not purely on the technical aspects of a novel procedure, but also the considerations a team might pursue in adopting, modifying, or developing a new procedure of any type...
The application of the minimally invasive approach has shown to be safe and effective for liver surgery and is in constant growth. The indications for laparoscopic surgery are steadily increasing acro...
To present our initial clinical experience with laparoscopic partial adrenalectomy using indocyanine green dye with near-infrared fluorescence imaging. A total of eight patients underwent transperiton...
Robotic transanal minimally invasive surgery (R-TAMIS) is gaining traction around the globe as an alternative to laparoscopic conventional TAMIS (L-TAMIS) for local excision of benign and early malign...
Previous studies have been inconsistent as to whether benign hysterectomy via minimally-invasive laparoscopic surgery increases risk of vesico-ureteral injury when compared to laparotomy. The objectiv...
Both laparoscopic partial nephrectomy (LPN) and robotic partial nephrectomy (RPN) can be performed through transperitoneal (TP) or retroperitoneal (RP) approach. RP approach is less utiliz...
Laparoscopic adrenalectomy is the treatment of choice for the benign tumor of less than 6 cm. However, this is an ongoing debate that exact cut-off value of tumor size for LA. The aim of t...
Right colectomy (hemicolectomy) involves the removal of the cecum, the ascending colon, the hepatic flexure, the first one-third of the transverse colon, part of the terminal ileum, and th...
This randomized comparative study assesses the safety and efficacy of the posterior retroperitoneoscopic adrenalectomy in comparison to the standard, anterior transperitoneal approach and ...
The study is a prospective radonmized comparison between needlescopic adrenalectomy and conventional laparoscopic adrenalectomy for benign adrenal tumors less than 5 cm. The operative succ...
Procedures that avoid use of open invasive surgery in favor of closed or local surgery. These generally involve use of laparoscopic devices and remote-control manipulation of instruments with indirect observation of the surgical field through an endoscope or similar device. With the reduced trauma associated with minimally invasive surgery, long hospital stays may be reduced with increased rates of short stay or day surgery.

The use of ultrasound to guide minimally invasive surgical procedures such as needle ASPIRATION BIOPSY; DRAINAGE; etc. Its widest application is intravascular ultrasound imaging but it is useful also in urology and intra-abdominal conditions.
Minimally invasive procedures guided with the aid of magnetic resonance imaging to visualize tissue structures.
Minimally invasive procedures, diagnostic or therapeutic, performed within the BLOOD VESSELS. They may be perfomed via ANGIOSCOPY; INTERVENTIONAL MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; INTERVENTIONAL RADIOGRAPHY; or INTERVENTIONAL ULTRASONOGRAPHY.
