Abstract

Pheochromocytomas (PHEOs) are neural crest cell tumors producing catecholamines. PHEOS need to be early diagnosed and adequately managed. Adrenalectomy is the gold standard treatment of these type of tumors. There has been major improvement of surgical technologies with the development of laparoscopic and robotic systems these past several years. We conducted a review of the literature to evaluate the robotic approach for adrenalectomy for patients with PHEO. 2020 Gland Surgery. All rights reserved.
