Laparoscopic adrenalectomy is a gold standard in the treatment of the majority of adrenal lesions. Infact, laparoscopic technique reduces post-operative morbidity, hospital stay, the necessity of blood transfusions, post-operative pain and complications. We examined the data of patients who were operated by laparoscopic technique from April 2000 to April 2010. The following data were evaluated: demographic data of the patients, type of operation, the operative time, the rate of conversion to laparotomic procedure, post-operative complications, histologic diagnosis and the dimensions of the lesions. A total of 41 patients underwent to laparoscopic procedure. Two patients developed complications which got resolved through medical treatment. No patient died after surgery. The time of laparoscopic procedure was 95 min in average. No patient was converted to laparotomy. The total average hospital stay was 4.18 days. Average diameter of the lesions was 4.43 cm (range 1.2-8.5 cm). The data we obtained from our studies confirm the safety and the feasibility of laparoscopic adrenalectomy and it’s application can be considered even in case of malignant lesions. The only contraindication to laparoscopic procedure is the involvement of surrounding tissue and vascular invasion by tumour cells. KEY WORDS: Tumori surrenalici - Surrenalectomia laparoscopica.
