Robot-assisted adrenalectomy (total, partial, & metastasectomy)

, : Robot-assisted adrenalectomy (total, partial, & metastasectomy). Urologic Clinics of North America 41(4): 539-547

Robotic-assisted adrenalectomy is an increasingly used intervention for patients with a variety of surgical adrenal lesions, including adenomas, aldosteronomas, pheochromocytomas, and metastases to the adrenal gland. Compared with traditional laparoscopy, robotic adrenalectomy has comparable perioperative outcomes and is associated with improved hospital length of stay and blood loss, though it does come at a cost premium. Emerging literature also supports a role for robotics in partial adrenalectomy and metastasectomy. Ultimately, well-conducted prospective trials are needed to fully define the role of robotics in the surgical management of adrenal disease.

We studied the spontaneous increase in the fluorescence intensity of 4,5-diaminofluorescein. A slow, steady increase in fluorescence continued for at least 125 h, and this increase was accompanied by ca. 2 nm red shift in the peak of emission...
