Laparoscopic adrenalectomy has been proven in human medicine to have significant advantages over open adrenalectomy. Multiple centers have now reported laparoscopic adrenalectomy in small animals with generally excellent results. As with open adrenalectomy, pre-and postoperative management is key to achieving a good outcome with these cases. Case selection is the key to obtaining good surgical results with modestly sized right or left adrenocortical tumors or pheochromocytomas with no demonstrated vascular invasion into the vena cava being the best candidates for the procedure.
