Abstract
PURPOSE: Recently, posterior retroperitoneoscopic adrenalectomy (PRA) has been reported to have some advantages over laparoscopic transperitoneal adrenalectomy (LTA). The objectives of this study were to report our experience over 12 years with laparoscopic adrenalectomy for primary hyperaldosteronism (PHA) and to examine surgical outcomes of PRA compared with LTA in patients with PHA. METHODS: The medical records of 527 patients who underwent minimally invasive adrenalectomy, including LTA or PRA, from January 2006 until May 2017 were reviewed at Severance Hospital (Seoul, Korea). Clinicopathologic characteristics and surgical outcomes of 146 patients with PHA who underwent LTA (19 patients) or PRA (127 patients) were analyzed retrospectively by complete chart review. RESULTS: The overall rates of biochemical and clinical cure were 91.1% and 93.1%, respectively. The mean operation time of the PRA group was significantly shorter than that of the LTA group (72.3 ± 24.1 minutes vs. 115.7 ± 69.7 minutes, P = 0.015). The length of hospital stay in the PRA group was significantly shorter than in the LTA group (3.5 ± 1.3 days vs. 4.2 ± 1.6 days, P = 0.029), and the first meal after surgery came earlier in the PRA group (0.3 ± 0.5 days vs. 0.6 ± 0.5 days, P = 0.049). The number of pain-killers used was also significantly smaller in the PRA group (2.3 ± 2.1 vs. 4.3 ± 2.3, P < 0.001). CONCLUSION: PRA offers an alternative or likely superior method for treatment of small adrenal diseases such as PHA, with improved surgical outcomes.
