Laparoscopic adrenalectomy: typical vascular anatomy and 3 major venous variations

The laparoscopic approach to adrenalectomy is based on the identification of vascular landmarks. We present a typical case of right adrenalectomy using 4 ports: one epigastric port to retract the liver, three subcostal ports to explore and dissect the adrenal fossa. This is a very interesting video in which we disclose vascular anomalies. A very good exposure of the operative field and the absence of bleeding during the procedure contribute to the perfect identification of these anatomical anomalies.
