Özet

Background:Laparoscopic posterior retroperitoneal (PR) adrenalectomy is preferable in patients with bilateral adrenal masses, as it obviates the need for repositioning. Robotic adrenalectomy has been reported to improve surgeon ergonomics and facilitate dissection. Although robotic bilateral transabdominal lateral adrenalectomy has been described in the literature, to our knowledge, the robotic bilateral PR approach has not been reported before. Herein, we report a case of a bilateral macronodular adrenal hyperplasia managed with robotic bilateral PR adrenalectomy.
