Since it was first performed in 1992, laparoscopy has clearly become the procedure of choice for the removal of most functioning and non-functioning adrenal tumors. Compared with those who underwent a standard open approach, patients undergoing a laparoscopic adrenalectomy have demonstrated decreased perioperative morbidity, shorter hospital stay, and faster functional recovery. This video demonstrates how to perform a laparoscopic adrenalectomy showing the surgical landmarks for a correct vascular approach in a stepwise fashion.
