SIU 2017: Is Laparoscopic Adrenalectomy by Lateral Retroperitoneal Approach Safe and Feasible Treatment Option for Pheochromocytoma Larger than 6cm?

Lisbon, Portugal (UroToday.com) Laparoscopic adrenalectomy for pheochromocytoma is a technically challenging procedure, traditionally approached by a transperitoneal approach. However, as with renal surgery, the retroperitoneal approach offers some benefits, particularly in obese patients. In this study, the group from South Korea examine the feasibility of laparoscopic adrenalectomy via a retroperitoneal approach (LRA) for large pheochromocytomas (PCC).

SIU 2017: Observation of Preliminary Clinical Effect and Analysis of Perioperative Complications of Radical Prostatectomy for Patients with Oligo-Metastatic Prostate Cancer

Lisbon, Portugal (UroToday.com) Radical prostatectomy in the setting of metastatic prostate cancer is gaining more attention in the recent past based4. on retrospective series, small institutional series and population level analysis demonstrating modest benefit ā€“ typically in delay to systemic therapy and improved local control. While there are ongoing large multinational clinical trials to answer this question, the data will take many years to acquire.
