Özet

Purpose: Surgical extirpation is the only curative treatment for large adrenal masses with or without thrombus extending into the inferior vena cava. However, occasionally complex surgical techniques are required, including venovenous bypass or cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). Additionally, applying techniques used for organ transplantation can provide better exposure with less blood loss to allow milking of the thrombus downward, limiting the need for bypass.
