Removal of retroperitoneal tumour (Laparoscopy)

Summary

Removal of retroperitoneal tumour (Laparoscopy)

A retroperitoneal tumour is an abnormal and rare growth that develops inside part of the abdominal cavity known as the retroperitoneal space. As the retroperitoneal space is hidden toward the back of the abdomen and the organs there are quite mobile, a retroperitoneal tumor can grow quite large, shifting organs out of its path, before being discovered. Symptoms such as an enlarged belly and abdominal pain may eventually develop. Although retroperitoneal tumours can be benign, or harmless, most often they are cancerous. Because of it's position, excision of the tumour can be challenging to carry out. Open surgery is relatively rarely used today. To minimize the surgical trauma of open surgery, the procedure is performed laparoscopically, thus giving all the advantages of minimally invasive surgery.
