Objectives. To study the influence of simultaneously performed abdominal and retroperitoneal operations on the quality, duration and severity of adrenalectomy.
Methods. The results of diagnosis and treatment of 7 patients with the adrenal glands tumors have been analyzed; the patients had a variety of related surgical diseases requiring surgical treatment. Nine patients with adrenal tumors underwent only adrenalectomy were taken as the control group. Topical diagnosis of adrenal tumors and related pathologies was made using ultrasonography and computed tomography letting to establish accurate diagnosis.
Results. Arterial hypertension was considered to be the main clinical symptom of all forms of adrenal tumors. All patients had a statistically significant increase (p <0,05) levels of the blood hormones and their metabolites in the urine. Character and volume of the preoperative antihypertensive therapy depended on the severity of hypertension and related cardiovascular and surgical pathologies.
The wide open surgical approaches, such as lumbar-laparotomy or thoraco-phrenico-lumbar-laparotomy have been used in all cases. Despite the volume and severity of simultaneous operations in patients of the main group, postoperative complications and length of hospitalization were less than in the control group. Within five-year observation there were no any data for recurrence and mortality in these patients.
Conclusion. To patients with adrenal tumors and surgical comorbidity of other organs it is advisable to carry out the simultaneous surgical correction, as it does not lead to a significant increase of the number of complications and mortality. When planning simultaneous operations in patients with adrenal gland tumor it is important to determine the level of anesthetic risk and choose the surgical access. Such operations should be performed in clinical centers with modern equipment by skilled surgeons possessing by sufficient practice in treating patients with adrenal diseases.
