This video demonstrates a right adrenalectomy in a patient with a 1.5 cm Conn's tumor. The surgeon mobilizes the superior aspect of the gland and exposes the inferior vena cava. After clipping and dividing the adrenal vein the middle, superior and inferior adrenal arteries are identified, clipped, and divided. The gland is resected completely and removed using a specimen bag. This video provides a good introduction to steps in performing a right adrenalectomy.
