One of the early adaptors of the approach, Tobias Carling, MD, PhD, FACS, performs a right posterior retroperitoneoscopic adrenalectomy on a patient that presented with subclinical Cushing's syndrome. Specifically, she had elevated urinary cortisol, failed a dexamethasone suppression test, and had a growing adrenal tumor as revealed by serial imaging. Due to the patient’s anatomy, Dr. Carling used a lateral approach to ligating the right adrenal vein; this video includes his usual medial approach as an additional module.
