Title: Work-up and Management of a Functional Adrenal Mass
Date and Time of Session: Tuesday, October 18: 4:15 pm - 5:45 pm
Description: With the increasing use of abdominal imaging, adrenal incidentalomas are frequently identified. The initial assessment of an adrenal nodule includes a functional work-up to evaluate for pheochromocytoma, hyperaldosteronism and Cushing’s syndrome. This session will discuss: 1) functional work-up options (labs and imaging) and criteria for the diagnosis of pheochromocytoma, hyperaldosteronism and Cushing’s syndrome; 2) management options for these 3 entities; 3) pre-operative preparation and intraoperative management of pheochromocytoma; 4) surgical approaches to adrenalectomy (open, transabdominal or retroperitoneoscopic laparoscopic, robotic); 5 )short and long-term outcomes after surgery.
