Large pheochromocytomas do not represent a contraindication to the laparoscopic approach. This video demonstrates the laparoscopic dissection of a left-sided 8cm pheochromocytoma. The standard approach allows for a primary control of the left adrenal vein and for a simple dissection of all vascular attachments. Careful manipulation is required to avoid any capsular injury as malignancy is not known.
