This book offers a comprehensive description of the main surgical treatments for adrenal tumors, encompassing both open surgery and laparoscopy. Introductory chapters cover surgical anatomy, pathology, the clinical diagnostic pathway, the role of different imaging techniques, and perioperative management. After discussion of general principles of adrenal surgery and instrumentation, individual surgical techniques are described in detail with the aid of step-by-step color photos and schematic drawings. For each procedure, careful attention is paid to indications and contraindications and to the most frequent complications. A further feature is the inclusion of numerous helpful decision-making algorithms for diagnosis and treatment. The text is structured according to the principles of "best practice" and the guidelines on evidence-based medicine and will thus be a valuable tool for practitioners in their clinical work.
From the reviews:
"There are no other books dedicated solely to adrenal gland surgery and this is a good addition. The audience includes residents and fellows in training as well as practicing general and endocrine surgeons. ... This is a great, concise book completely focused on the adrenal glands. The material is covered much more in depth than it is in the chapters on adrenal surgery in larger surgical textbooks. The visual aids are particularly helpful and are a great resource." (Julie A. Alosi, Doody's Book Reviews, May, 2013)
