Abstract

Simultaneous adrenal and pulmonary lesions frequently present a therapeutic challenge to the thoracic surgeon. We describe 2 cases in which a transthoracic, transdiaphragmatic approach was used to establish tissue diagnosis and complete removal of gross tumor. In 1 case an intraoperative decision to perform a pneumonectomy was dictated by the tissue diagnosis of the adrenal mass, which was obtained with relative ease via this method. In both cases the morbidity of traditional approaches for adrenal operation was avoided.
