CASTILLO C, Octavio A; CAMPOS P, Rodrigo; HENRIQUEZ D, Rene  y  BRAVO P, Juan. Bilateral laparoscopic synchronous adrenalectomy in bilateral pheochromocytoma: experience in 8 patients. Rev Chil Cir [online]. 2011, vol.63, n.6, pp. 573-578. ISSN 0718-4026.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-40262011000600005.

Aim: To evaluate 8 cases of bilateral pheochromocytoma and laparoscopic synchronous treatment. Patients and Methods: From May 1999 to May 2010, 8 patients with bilateral pheochromocytoma were found. A complete preoperative workup was done. Results: We perform 8 transperitoneal laparoscopic bilateral synchronous adrenalectomy. There was no open converted procedure. Mean operative time was 184.37 min. (range 95 to 300 min). Mean hospital stay was 3.8 days (range 3 to 5 days). Mean blood loss was 191.25 ml (range 0 to 500 min). In 7 cases the histopathological result was of pheochromocytoma and 1 as a malignant pheochomocytoma based on its histology. Conclusions: With very well establish diagnostic disease, an appropriate anesthetic strategy and as surgical skills, laparoscopic bilateral synchronic adrenalectomy is a feasible and safe surgical technique for bilateral pheochromocytomas.
