Background: This systematic review and metanalysis was conducted to assess differences between perioperative and functional outcomes in patients undergoing minimally‐invasive partial (mi‐PA) and total adrenalectomy (mi‐TA) for unilateral primary aldosteronism (uPHA). Material and Methods: Multiple scientific databases (PUBMED, Web of Science, and Cochrane Library) were searched up to November 2021 for surgical series comparing mi‐PA vs. mi‐TA for uPHA according to the PRISMA statement. Primary outcomes of interest were perioperative and functional outcomes. Results: Overall, a total of 802 patients from six eligible studies were identified, with mi‐ PA and mi‐TA performed in 40.4% (n = 324) and 59.6% (n = 478) of cases, respectively. No differences were recorded between the two groups according to number of transfusions, EBL and Clavien– Dindo complications ≥2. Similarly, no differences in clinical success, persistence of postoperative hypokalemia and improvement in HTN were reported between mi‐PA and mi‐TA. Conclusions: In a uPHA setting, mi‐PA and mi‐TA provide comparable perioperative and functional outcomes despite the use of mi‐PA remains limited to patients with small adenoma size, or hereditary/bilateral disease. Due to limited use of standardized reporting criteria in most of current series, the quest for a superiority of mi‐PA over mi‐TA in the treatment of uPHA still remains open.

Abstract

Background: This systematic review and metanalysis was conducted to assess differences between perioperative and functional outcomes in patients undergoing minimally‐invasive partial (mi‐PA) and total adrenalectomy (mi‐TA) for unilateral primary aldosteronism (uPHA). Material and Methods: Multiple scientific databases (PUBMED, Web of Science, and Cochrane Library) were searched up to November 2021 for surgical series comparing mi‐PA vs. mi‐TA for uPHA according to the PRISMA statement. Primary outcomes of interest were perioperative and functional outcomes. Results: Overall, a total of 802 patients from six eligible studies were identified, with mi‐ PA and mi‐TA performed in 40.4% (n = 324) and 59.6% (n = 478) of cases, respectively. No differences were recorded between the two groups according to number of transfusions, EBL and Clavien– Dindo complications ≥2. Similarly, no differences in clinical success, persistence of postoperative hypokalemia and improvement in HTN were reported between mi‐PA and mi‐TA. Conclusions: In a uPHA setting, mi‐PA and mi‐TA provide comparable perioperative and functional outcomes despite the use of mi‐PA remains limited to patients with small adenoma size, or hereditary/bilateral disease. Due to limited use of standardized reporting criteria in most of current series, the quest for a superiority of mi‐PA over mi‐TA in the treatment of uPHA still remains open.
