Overview

We present three patients, who underwent bilateral adrenalectomy for ACTH dependent Cushing’s syndrome. Despite using all available examination methods, we failed to identify the source of ACTH overproduction prior to the time of intervention. Surgery was performed in our department of urology from 2009–2011 based on the indication of the endocrinologist. For patients undergoing bilateral adrenalectomies laparoscopic or robotic approaches have a clear benefit.

Key words:
bilateral adrenalectomy, Cushing’s syndrom.
