Feochromocytoma is a generally benign tumor that develops from the central part of the midrange of the adrenal. It produces catecholamine-like hormones such as adrenaline and noradrenaline and is diagnosed with the dosage of these hormones and their degradation products in the blood. Abdominal TAC and Magnetic Resonance confirm the diagnosis.
Currently the most used modern technique for removing an adrenal is LAPAROSCOPY SURRENALECTOMY.
It consists in removing the adrenal through microincisions in the abdomen of 5 or 10 mm.
The technique is the classic of laparoscopic or miniinvasive surgery (see).
The removed adrenal comes in a bag and is extracted from another small engraving called service engraving just above the pub.
The surgery is performed in general anesthesia, lasting about two to three hours with a modest trauma.
The difference between the removal of adrenal gland and adrenalctomy is more delicate from the anesthesiological point of view.
In fact, surgical manipulation of the adrenal during the surgical procedure can give rise to a kind of squeeze that circulates large amounts of catecholamines. Substances such as adrenaline are potentially harmful in high doses. Quick recovery.
