Özet

Background: Laparoscopic adrenalectomy has become the gold standard in most patients with adrenal tumors. It is unclear; however, at what size an adrenal neoplasm should be resected by means of an open or a laparoscopic approach. The aim of the present study was to compare the outcomes of laparoscopic adrenalectomy for large tumors with smaller tumors.
